Re: Laptop recommendations



I just wanted to thank everyone for their input.  Although I won't buy
one immediately, I'll probably get a T43 as they are still available
if you look.

Maybe support for the ACPI/audio/wifi in the T60 will be better by the
time I'm getting ready to buy so I can have the nice SATA drive and
dual-core CPU.  :)

Thanks,
RJ

Hi RJ.

I would recommend IBM/Lenovo.
OpenBSD 3.9 works out of the box including (but not limited to ;)
suspend, buttons, ... on my IBM X40.

After a hard disk error on my Mac PowerBook (ppc architecture)
I discovered that the support from Mac is really sh*t.

Having a choice between IBM/Lenovo I strongly recommend an IBM/Lenovo
notebook. But check http://www.openbsd.org/laptop.html .

HTH,

Andreas.
