Gateway P-7805u FX

Postby Kirsten on Thu Mar 26, 2009 8:06 pm

Is anyone familiar with this laptop?
Any problems I should know about before I buy one?
The webcam and microphone functionality is optional, but I'd like everything else to work well.
I understand that only 3 of the 4 gigs of ram may be addressable; I'm working on 1G now,
so I can probably live with that. ;)
TIA,
Kirst

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

ok this looks good.
the main thing to check with laptops is wifi cards.
this one is ok (intel have good linux support) but you may have to look at "driver iwlagn" to get it working if it does not work out of the box.
