I'm considering switching to a "free-d" laptop, but I'm still not
certain if 1GHz is fast enough.  Maybe I just need to get over it and
try it out.

Also there is a new DIY laptop that'll be available soon on crowd

I personally, don't like the mouse ball, and the ARM CPU is only 1.2
GHz, but it's got 4GB of RAM.  That'd be enough for me.

I've got a core 2 Duo in my Macbook, and it works swell.  Maybe that's
the laptop that I should go with!
