I'm interested to hear what suppliers you might recommend around Canberra,
particularly for the DSL modem/router I've been asking about and for a
simple server box too.  I've had good experience with Harris Technologies
in Sydney, but I don't think they have a branch in Canberra.
I'm also interested in purchasing an IBM R51 express laptop (512MB RAM,
60GB harddrive, 1.5GHz Centrino)  [Is there any reason why this would be a
bad laptop for Linux?]  IBM's web site lists it at $2349, but since I'll
get it through the university, I'd be interested to hear if you know
anyone who can offer educational pricing.  I also hear IBM employees can
get a staff discount, which they can offer to friends. Are any of you on
IBM's payroll able to say more about this?
