hardware specs; is it a video card

I'm looking at the nc4200 specs on hp's site.

In the video column, it shows "ntel® Graphics Media Accelerator 900, up to 128-MB shared system memory".

Does this mean that the video card is some unusual card that would be difficult to configure in linux?

Looks like it uses the i810 driver.

Plus it eats 128 MB of physical memory. Get a notebook computer with a nVidia graphics adaptor instead an Intel graphics adaptor.
