Raspberry Pi On the hardware side, there's an HDMI port; you can connect a monitor up to 1920x1200 (possibly through an HDMI-DVI or HDMI-VGA adapter, which costs barely more than an HDMI cable). There are 4 USB2 ports. The Ethernet port is 100Mbit/s, which should be plenty sufficient for a thin client, especially if it's displaying a web page rather than ...

Most modern wifi adaptors should work with little issues. My goto spare 'it will certainly work' wifi adaptor's a generic no brand 802.11 n nano adaptor - a few dozen companies make em. They universally use the same, standard ralink chipset. This is the specific one I have, and if you want a branded one Edimax's riff on the product is certain to work. Plug ...

I am currently running an Oryx Pro from System76 and it is serving me very well, I've configured it with: 24GB of DDR4 A 250GB NVMe SSD (+ a 1TB hdd) A GTX 970M Graphics Card And an i7-6700HQ processor. (Everything working with 16.04 LTS) Although this meets all your requirements, I spent $2000 on mine, you're probably going to configure it differently. (...

I recommend a HP printer, specifically the HP LaserJet Pro M130nw. Amazon claims to sell it for $99 once you add to cart. HP has always had the best support on Linux [1][2][3], and the current open source drivers – which are in the default Ubuntu repository (main),* and may even be installed by default^ – claim full support for the M130 series [...

Short, spec based recommendation is the Lenovo X390 Carbon. I'm assuming you're in Europe but not the UK, so the price on Lenovo's Irish site is €1730-1800 (i7, 16GB soldered RAM, 512GB-1TB SSD). Changing keyboard to German, French etc is free. When I checked on the Irish site, a 1TB SSD was only €30 more than a 512GB and they're giving away a free Moto ...

Assuming you'd prioritise raw performance over portability and battery life, I'd recommend the Dell Precision 15 7150 ($2,235) It's a workstation laptop configurable to have a 512 GB NVMe SSD. The CPU is an Intel Xeon E3-1505M v5, a quad core, hyperthreaded CPU, with base clock of 2.8 GHz and turbo up to 3.7 GHz (4 core turbo would be 3.5 GHz), it is one of ...

Use it as a development web server; on travels also as office computer. I´ts an Asus K53U 15" wide screen glare display, full keyboard, Ethernet and WLAN g, a Kensington Lock, SD slot, 3*USB, VGA and HDMI output, DVD writer not ...

For $100, you're not going to get a new card. New hardware RAID cards typically run several hundred dollars. What you can get is an old server-class RAID card pulled from a retired system. I recommend the Areca ARC-1120 8-port card. It's a universal PCI/PCI-X card, so it can fit in almost any PCI or PCI-X slot (the exception being those few PCI ...
