I want to buy an AMD Turion 64 bit dual core notebook
I want to buy a notebook with an AMD Turion 64 bit dualcore processor. Most probably HP (or Compaq). Has anybody used this processor with Linux? Does Mandriva support dual core and 64 bit both at the same time. (I've heard about people using dual core processors and also 64 bit processors with Mandriva but not 64 bit dual core processors with Mandriva.) Would both 64 bit cores get recognized? I don't want to use anything other than Linux so any info before I buy would be a big help. Is there any brand other than HP (or Compaq) which is Linux friendly? Or is there any distro which is more user friendly and hardware friendly than Mandriva?
