Could you take a look at the processor? I'd like to know cores and clock speed. I might need a laptop for school, so I'm fairly interested.

And how do you feel about shipping to Canada?

It is an Intel Pentium M 1.6GHz. Shipping to Canada is fine; I would just ask that you cover the extra shipping costs.

Also, in the interest of good faith, it did take me 3 tries before it booted properly today. I just really think the BIOS needs an update or something - but if I'm honest, its beyond me at this point. I'm not that computer-literate. But it did work flawlessly once booted.

So, from a little reading, it seems that's a single core 1.6...

Well, it's a little slower than I would have hoped. I think I might look around for a little to see if I can't find something faster. Of course, for the price this is still nice. I went to look new, and a 1.6GHz with only 1 gig of ram was over 300$...I can't get over that.

Yeah I don't blame you. The only reason it is actually usable is Ubuntu, lol. Its really impressive going from a similarly-equipped Windows XP computer to the Ubuntu laptop - a surprisingly big jump in system speed for sure.
