Hi everyone!
I am so happy that I found you! I hope that you will be able to help me! I am planning to buy a latop in the next days and I was looking around the net for one that fits on my needs! I found that one and now I would like to understand whether there are any problems installing fedora 4 or 5 on it! I will be very thanksful if anyone can give me any information about this latop! The idea is that I don't want any kind of Windows on this computer and if it not working properly with fedora i'll have to find something else!
Thanks in advance for your help!
