I quite often attend without taking my PC. It's a desktop machine and my 
monitor is big and heavy so it's a bit of a hassle. I don't have my own 
laptop, but there's usually a few people there with theirs. Maybe you could 
bring yours along and someone may be able to help you get it running Linux. I 
understand the modern distros are much better at supporting laptop hardware 
than in the past.

Some of us go along to talk about what we have been up to. As much as anything 
it's a mutual support group to reassure us that there some Linux users out 

If you want to get a quick response outside meetings there are generally a few 
people on our IRC channel at #hertslug on EFnet.

Hope to see you at a meeting.
