[OT] Laptops with Linux

I am using a Dell Latitude 610c.
FC1 works perfectly on this machine, but I got several problems with FC2
test1 because of the alsa architecture... as I was running out of time,
I stopped testing for the moment.
Before I had a thinkpad 770Z, and it took a lot of work to get that damn
crystal 4236 soundchip working (RH 9). But all other was also working
good and quite fast.
The only problem with the 610c I had was with the ethernet cards in the
docking station. The problem was that I never got the default gateway
running on the eth1 (the card in the docking station), on eth0 (builtin)
was running ok.
As I know, on a Dell Inspiron 8100 and Toshiba Satellite (dont remember
the model) it was also installing and running without problems!
With best regards,
