Acer Travelmate 292LMi. Is this a good one?


I'm attending to buy a notebook within a few months. I dropped my eye on
an Acer Travelmate 292LMi with an Pentium M 1.5 GHz, 512 mb RAM and an ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 64 mb RAM.

My questions are: 1: Is this a good laptop in general?
2: Will Linux (preferable Fedora Core 3 test 1) run
smooth on this laptop?

Thanks in advance.

Well, never mind about the above question. I drastically changed my mind.

I'm thinking about an Acer Aspire 1510 with an Athlon 64 3000+ , 512 mb ram (maybe upgrade to 1024), 40 (or 60) GB harddisk and a Radeon 9600 with 64 mb.

My questions are the same:

1. Is this a good laptop? (I mean the 64 bits processor, can you trust this)
2. Is there a chance that Linux will run on this one?
