Any general hardware advice?


Hi,

I have recently decided to crossover from the dark side (ie Windows) and switch to Linux. I am planning to purchase a laptop and devote it to Linux(probably SUSE 10). I was under the impression that there are often many complications involved with installing Linux on laptops and would just like some general advice about possible hardware issues. The specific model I'm considering doesn't show up on TuxMobil.

Any advice is appreciated.

These are the tech specs:
HP ze2401xt
AMD Sempron 3000+ 1.8 GHz
60 GB HD
ATI RADEON XPRESS 200M IGP 128MB video memory
512 MB DDR SDRAM
54g 802.11b/g WLAN wireless
DVD+-RW
