buying new notebook.


Hi there. I plan to buy a new Dell Inspiron 510m laptop and before doing anything stupid, i think i should post here to ask about your guys opinions. Is this laptop is supported under Linux? (preferably Slackware Linux). Any idea is greatly appreciated.

Also Google provided some more information, things I encountered were issues with getting the maximum resolution ouf of the Intel Graphics chipset and having Wireless:

This website in particular seems to have a lot of useful information:
