HP G62t CTO
Intel i3 (2.53ghz)
320gb 7200rpm Hard Drive
ATI Radeon HD 5470 (512mb dedicated)
5-1 Card Reader
Wireless N (hope that means its b/g too. lol)
So yea, just want to make sure everything is going to run smooth as pie, like Windows 7 is supposed to. lol My old laptop finally died, so I'm making a leap in terms of speed and features on this thing. I'm going to be dual-booting this one with 7 on the other partition, mainly booting to Mint. Just keeping 7 for gaming, basically. Thanks in advance.
I did the same with my new laptop Dell Inspiron 15R which I bought 1 month earlier and then installed Julia (linux mint 10), and I must say I'm amazed by its performance.
It detected everything in the first place, from web cam to graphics card and its really stable
You must try it first, see if everything works in your case too. good luck and congratulations.
