which laptop with these features?
Hi folks, i'm looking for a new laptop. Can anyone recommend a good
one with these features:
14" or bigger screen, with better than 1024x768 resolution
CD-RW/DVD drive (fixed or removable is ok)
accepts a 12.5mm hard disk
accepts two batteries
video supported natively by XFree86 4.1 or 4.2 (not nVidia)
audio supported by OSS in the 2.4 kernel
price under $2,500
I was pretty excited about the Dell Inspiron 4150 until i learned that
it only accepts 9.5mm hard disks. Then i was excited about the Inspiron
8200 until i learned that the ATI video card is only available if you
configure it with a 2 GHz P4, 512 MB RAM, and a 40 GB disk.
I've heard good things about the IBM Thinkpads but havent dont the
Any info would be appreciated.
