http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello Forums, Background: I a few months ago I found a Dell Latitude D420 in a box of office things on the street. It was accompanied by its (19.5V 4.62A) [UNGROUNDED?!] power adapter and a docking station. I'm most familiar with Ubuntu so for convenience/functionality sake I'm going to have Ubuntu 12.04 installed. I intend this laptop to be available to my family for browsing and playback of music from Pandora (via Pithos) and over our home network. In an attempt to extend the battery life of the laptop I hope to keep puppy (undecided version) on either an SD card (4 GB) or micro S (Hardware)
