After looking at laptops for about 4 months, I find the one that
appeals to me the most is the new Sony VAIO 505TX. I'm planning to
get one when they come out, and hope to run linux on it. I'm
wondering if anyone here knows anything about some of the hardware,
and its linux compatibility. I guess my main questions are:
(1) What video chip is used?
(2) Is the "Xbrite" technology a hardware modification, or
is it software? Is it likely to have trouble under linux?
(3) Is the modem a winmodem?
I can't seem to find this stuff out from the web page, and the
person I talked to at vaiodirect didn't know the answer to these
Thanks in advance,
