Laptop For Linux DesktopLinux

Nowadays, Laptop For Linux DesktopLinux at this time is getting a lot of places in the heart of the user's notebook or laptop. Various reasons cited by the Linux user this. Starting from the classic problems such as the license is due to the excess-surplus offered by Linux. Even a switch to Linux because it is already bored with the look and the old OS because it is often fed back to install:)

For that I tried to explain here specification laptop / notebook that is suitable and have the hardware that is already well known by Linux Desktop at this time. Here I do not mention brands, but you can from it hardwarenya specifications.

I write the course outline based on my own experience:

1. Processor
Both Intel and AMD at this time already well known to all the technology in Linux that are popular at this time.

2. Video chipset
All video chipset that is currently already can run linux with a graphical display standards. For at least the 3D chipset is from Intel. Ranging from 945 up to Intel X1300. This chipset is directly running 3D to run Compiz Fusion on Linux.
To run a more 3D, please select the weight of a chipset from NVidia or ATI, and if its video memory can be dedicated (not shared from RAM). Both chipset requires drivers retired in Linux.

3. Wifi Chipset
Intel is still so great in the introduction harware directly on Linux. For other chipsets such as Broadcom and Atheros also a retired driver in linux, can also use ndiswrapper.

4. Hard disk.
I think the hard drive is well recognized by both the linux IDE and SATA.

5. Network Card
All Network Card Laptop chipset at this time has also been well recognized by linux.

6. Webcam / Camera
This is still quite difficult. Due to some new vendors only add the drivers for linux, also the installation manual. Chipset Webcam that can be run on linux with the drivers that I know belong to a new chipset and Acer microdia.

7. Internal Modem
Most have been recognized by linux at this time. If that is not detected may indeed require a special driver.

In general that I can review the specifications of laptop or notebook to run Linux well. This is different from the UMPC at this time that already include the OS on Linux, of course all the hardware is already running well.

From the results of the survey, I still centrino laptop with the specification from Intel (Intel chipset from the motherboard, processor, wifi, video) is the right choice when we do not want to fuss with driver installation in linux.
