Its been 3 months when I start searching for a laptop to use FC1. Until now cant determine which laptop to get for FC1 to run well for a cheaper price. I'm a newbie in laptop linux installations and installed several destops and servers using RH. Its easy for me to replace cards and motherboards if linux is not compatible with it. But for a laptop I find it difficult.
With my long list of choices of laptops that is available where i'm located at. I think im looking at purchasing ECS G733. This is the cheapest that I can buy that I think linux will run well. But before doing so, i'd like to know your expert advise. With this configuration will it do well in FC1 and KDE?
SiS® 651 + SiS962
256MB SODIMM RAM
Video & Graphic
SiS® 651 with embedded 3D engine
SMA (Sharing Memory Architecture), 64MB Max.
Synaptics w/ scrolling button
10/100 Base-T LAN on board
Fax/Moedm V.90 miniPCI card I/O Port
Its my first time to use SiS as a video processor for XFree86. I have a bad experience with shared memory in i845GE to run XFree86. So I generalized that shared memory is bad for XFree86.
What do you think? Will I go for it?
