Hi,
Would you please tell me How about the support of Fedora Core for
notebook PC(aka laptop)? and what kinds of notebook PC can be
supported by Fedora Core (such as FC2, FC3) ?



if you are about to buy a notebook... the key issue in my experience is
the video chipset. In my experience the intel video based laptops work
well, while nvidia/ati are more cumbersome (even with the binary
drivers), however the gaming performance will be lower than with
nvidia/ati.



I would avoid Intel graphics. Nvidia works out of the box even with the opensource driver...
and except for brand new releases of FC, their binary driver work well.


Intel graphics are painful. They are integrated with the BIOSes, and needed special hacks just to
get some video memory earlier... and stick suck badly wrt. to getting proper display modes too


I thought Intel was great, and Nvidia bad. Experience has taught me otherwise.
