I am shopping around for a new laptop and I think the new ibook looks
pretty sweet. If I do get it I would want to run debian on it most of the
time, so I have a few questions about the status of hardware support.
Power Mgt -- Are the power management functions (sleep, charging,
backlight control, etc.) supported?
Video -- it's a Rage Mobility 128 chip; I assume this is supported in the
latest Xfree86? Is there the ability to switch from the internal display
to the external (RGB/composite) connectors?
Sound -- I heard this wasn't working; I have a USB audio converter so I
can do without it for a while.
Also if you think there might be a better beal on a laptop I should
consider, let me know.
