Laptop with Debian OS
Seeking advice from users who succeeded in arranging a laptop with Debian squeeze or lenny, wireless LAN, 3D acceleration video, flsh for speech. The laptop WITH STANDARD USA KEYBOARD should be available from European market resellers.

i bought a lenovo T61 because i just knew everything would work out the box, i had mares in the past with mic, ext mic, volume, cd eject, wifi, video etc so i did much research, i eventually dropped ubuntu on it and got 100% success first time and not headaches.

btw, i got it used from ebay and after a week i spilled a drink on the kbd - kerpow - 10 keys dead, so i rang ibm but didn't tell the whole truth, they said it was still under warranty and came out the next day, bonus.

I'm running 64bit Debian Squeeze on a Lenovo G550 and on a Zepto 6224W with no major problems: some of the Fn-keys don't work on the Lenovo and I have to use Broadcom STA driver for the wireless. The Zepto works right "out of the box".

Squeeze is pretty buggy at the moment. If I were you I'd install lenny and then upgrade to squeeze when it is released.
