Hi group,

Thank you all for replying. Unfortunately, the L3800 was out of stock
and they didn't know when (if at all) they would be delivered again. So
I went to another store and ordered a L5800 for about the same price,
;-) It has a Radeon 9000, which, according to a previous thread, is also
well supported by XFree 4.3. Furthermore, it has usb 2.0 instead of 1.1,
etc. There isn't an entry at linux-laptop.net, but looking through the
specs, I suspect it'll work perfectly, except for TV-Out, since the 9000
is not supported by the gatos project. Ati mentions on its website that
it is working on supporting the TV-Out for linux, so I'm optimistic
about that too.
