Well, I'm going to be purchasing my first laptop in the immediate future, and thanks to a tip from bolivar, I have tentatively decided on the Sager 4780-S. Here are some links for further info:
As I have zero experience with Linux on laptops (I will be running Linux of course), I was wondering what my fellow Archers might have to say about this particular laptop.
In particular, is there anything glaring that I should be concerned with? What about the Radeon 9600 Pro? I have experience only with NVidia drivers which have worked very well for me. Am I in for a dissapointment going with a Radeon in a Linux context?
Well, thanks for reading this and I look forward to reading any comments you might have. Also, feel free to offer alternatives, and I am not married to ording this laptop, it is simply the one that I will go with if I don't find a better alternative.
Don't forget to post your PKGBUILD in your thread when you announce a new package in incoming.

Do you know
Othrwise don't count on the modem - it's likely to be a winmodem.
The rest has good chances to work. The camera may be a gamble. The Radeon will work in *some* mode :-) but I have no expereinces with Radeons.
