Anybody know something about Jetta notebooks? A vendor in my area sells them with the option of no operating system.

P.S. This is no spam, I'm not affiliated with these companies and am considering buying a notebook or tablet.

Way to general as a question to answer in a good way…

I have never heard of Jetta, yet, i live in germany so this properly doesn't say anything. Most "small" laptop producers are in reality rebranded big-players, so try to find out who is the big one behind this one.


Oh, just because they optionally install linux or sell windows-free machines doesn't mean that the machine is "linux® ready" (pun intended). Better have a look at the components for this kind of check and do a reality check of what do you need your laptop for. In the newer intelcores (second generation of i{3,5,7}) is a graphic card builtin. You will not be able to do last-generation full-details gaming, but they are on the other hand not that bad as their reputation (coming from older intel card, which weren't all that bad either --- i am a fan because i don't need binary blobs for them Wink )


Last not least: These laptops seem to be a little pricy. I got an i3-2330M/4GB RAM/500GB HD/inbuilt intel graphiccard (Acer aspire 5749) for less than 400€ (should be ~550$) recently, and that was sort of an emergency buy. They sell the Jetbook 9742S with less RAM and HD for more than 700$…

P.S.: The wireless card is the same btw; you need firmware-iwlwifi, but thats all.

P.P.S.: You will find people claiming that Acer is shit. They might be true, they just didn't disappoint me so far and their stuff is usually the cheapest i can find.

ACER is good. Their service are good here in New Delhi.
Build quality is good, nice keyboards. Good price. No stupid software.
All machines incl that of kids, 3 laptops and a desktop, ACER here,
last 2, 1 desktop and a laptop purchased a few months
back. Before that I used to assemble my Desktops. Windows 3.1
with countless FDs and reboots would take a few hours in
early nineties.

DELL refused to give me machines with more than 1 partition. They said that
would charge extra for their service engineer to repartition the
W7 preloaded machines. ACER desktop I got with raw HDD and a OEM W7 CD
and S.No./KEY. Saved a lot of pain.
Not that I would buy DELL anyway.

Just personal taste and experience.

Have a nice day.
