notebook for Linux and X11: Dell XPi 75

Post by Buffat Ma » Thu, 21 Dec 1995 04:00:00



I am looking for a notebook to run LinuX and X11. The specification is the
following:
    DX4/100 or Pentium 75
    16 Mega mem
    >800 Mega disk
    ethernet PCMCIA card
    640x480 lcd (TFT)

I am looking at some Dell model : lattitude XPi P75D. It looks good,
but it uses a Cirrus Logic CL-GD7542 video chipset, that is
not presently supported by XFree86. Does any body has experiences
with this notebook running Linux and X11, or any advice for
a good notebook (that I can found in France of course).
        Thanks in advance,
                                Marc
