Mine is a bit old at this point, an Inspiron E1505. The wireless card firmware was recently (in the last year) moved to non- free. I do not use bluetooth so, I'm not even sure if the laptop supports it. Mine came with an Intel graphics card that I've been quite happy with, but I don't do any gaming on it. Suspend (to disk or RAM) and resume work well in Lenny. All the media buttons generate keycodes that can be mapped to whatever you desire -- openSUSE and *buntu seem to do some of that automatically. Haven't experimented with the new RandR in Lenny, but I hear it works great with this video card. SD slot and DVD R/W work fine as does USB. I had to replace the battery last month. I can recommend the Dell-buntus. They may require some software from non- free (which is unfortunate) to get full functionality, but I haven't found a laptop that doesn't. -- Boyd Stephen Smith Jr. ,= ,-_-. =. email@example.com ((_/)o o(\_)) ICQ: 514984 YM/AIM: DaTwinkDaddy `-'(. .)`-' http://iguanasuicide.net/ \_/
