I am thinking of buying a new laptop, and want one which will work fine

FBSD doesn't boot when i switched to ATI Video card.
Are you saying the R400 has both integrated and discrete video cards?
Lenovo's web site doesn't seem very oriented to telling potential
customers details about their newer computers.
