Need some advice on laptop purchase decision: Has any one used Toshiba Tecra laptops or Fujitsu lifebook laptops?

It appears these companies dont even update the websites but their products do look interesting. Suggestions outside these companies very much appreciated too :)

Ideal specs: i5 or i7 processor, 8 or 12 gig of ram, 14" screen or less, decent battery (~4 hours), light weight (<2.25 kg) and hopefully windows 10 compatible (or I could just install ubuntu 14.04 and live happily ever after :) )

Thanks folks

If Linux is OK with you, then go to www.zareason.com for great Linux laptops! Toshiba and Fujitsu laptops are good, mechanically speaking, but I don't know about support. The folks at zareason will take good care of you!
