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.
