This question has sort of been asked before, but I never saw a clear answer, so here it is, in the hope that someone can save me some time:
I need a cheap, simple, reasonably light laptop, but not a tiny display, and I'm looking at the Best Buy pre-configured Inspiron 15 (i.e. Inspiron 1545). Anyone have direct experience with FreeBSD amd64 on one of these? Is there anything that isn't going to work? The video is "Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD". If it works well enough to watch DVDs and the occasional downloaded video, I'll be happy. The wireless card is a Dell 1397 802.11b/g. Will I be able to build an NDIS driver (presumably on 7.2-RELEASE amd64)? Is the ExpressCard 34 slot supported? Best Buy's description is at http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9149414&type=product&id=1218036213682 Thanks, -- Bob _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
