    4. A decent laptop and a bit of money for additional equipment...

    Seriously, this is a distro running KDE3. Any recent laptop will run it (hopefully) - there is a HCL on the wiki. Read it.

    I got BT3 working (with KDE !) on an old 450 Mhz Pentium 2 comp with an onboard graphic chipset.
    Booting is very slow, but it works

    So i think you might get it running on almost every comp if the hardware is supported.
    Be sensitive in choosing where you ask your question. You are likely to be ignored, or written off as a loser, if you:

    * post your question to a forum where it's off topic
    * post a very elementary question to a forum where advanced technical questions are expected, or vice-versa
    * cross-post to too many different newsgroups
    * post a personal e-mail to somebody who is neither an acquaintance of yours nor personally responsible for solving your problem

    maybe that's what he's trying to get, the HCL (and doesn't realize that it stands for Hardware Compatibility List). If that's the case, then just google it. I found the Offensive-security site to be quite useful
