I am in the process of finding an upgrade for my five year old HP Compaq laptop on which I run LMDE. I am looking for a rather powerful machine since I also would like to do some number crunching on it. The HP Elitebook 8460p seems to be an option but before just buying I would like to know whether LMDE will install and run smoothly on it. I really don't have a lot of time to fiddle around to solve problems. Shall appreciate your advice.
