inspiron 8200

If you have the nvidia graphics chip, you need to get the nvidia drivers from the nvidia website.

I'm thinking about buying an inspiron 8200. how much time on the battery do you get from a charge??

Did you get the built in wireless? I think it's an orinoco chip, so it should work, but I'm wondering if it looks like a pcmcia card to the kernel, or otherwise how it's interfaced.

thanks.
