Because I'm a mug, and that they look nice, I'm considering a new Vaio.
The model that has me wetting myself in anticipation is that VGN-A
197XP, which has a 1.8GHz centrino with a 2mb cache, a 17" 1920x1200
screen and an 80gb harddrive. It's lovely.
The big question is how well does FreeBSD run on it? I absolutely need
to have suspend/resume support as it only has a single battery with a
life of around 2.5 hours (no second battery slot :().
Has anyone tried FreeBSD on anything like this? What's the chances that
the wireless 802.11g and bluetooth will work?
p.s. we could really do with a laptop supported web page. Anyone?
