Re: [vox] Laptop recommendation

At LugRadio Live, Matthew Garrett (linux kernel guy) had a bunch of
slides talking about the state of the linux kernel on laptops.  One of
the questions he gets asked -alot- is "will linux run on my laptop?" 
his answer was another question:  "is everything onboard manufactured
by intel?"  If yes, then probably, if not, then probably not.

Higher-end laptops with intel everything works the best, IME...

--best of luck


PS: I just saw that most of the talks for LugRadio Live were posted:
