I recently bought compaq F733 laptop, with freedos preinstalled. Wiped it 
clean and installed arch linux.

sound/networking/encrypted installation/wide screen resolution with 
accelarated opengl(sorry binary nvidia drivers) etc.  webcam worked in first 
shot with linux-uvc. Just opened kopete and I was staring at myself.

Suspend works, hibernate not tried. Battery life is about 2.5-3 hours 
estimated.. never drained it to death.

Only thing I have not tried is wireless network. I don't have one.

Overall, I can recommend it heartily. for about 35000/- including 3 years 
hardware warranty and 2GB RAM upgrade, it is a good buy.
