Hi all,

I run Pd Vanilla on a MacBook Pro, so I am at a loss here...

I'm looking for the lowest-range laptop running a flavour of Linux to install Pd Vanilla needed for a specific use described below. As I've never purchased this, I'm looking for hive-mind experience.

I don't need heavy hitting power, because it will be for outreach groups (kids from disadvantaged areas). We won't get into extremely intensive patching. I'm happy with built-in stereo out. The more laptops I can afford on a €12,000 grant (minus speakers, projectors and screens for the actual art installation) the better. At this stage, I just need to get quotes for the Irish Arts Council funding application. 

What laptop? What Linux distribution? Any gotchas I need to worry about (sound card issues, etc.)?

Enquiring minds want to know...
