Hello all,

i would like to buy a new Laptop in the very near future, and of course 
it has to run my favourite OS. I have never searched for a Laptop, and 
now that i did i am overwhelmed with the confusing variety of different 
Brands and Models. One of the big Questions i am having is; Should i 
look for a 64 bit Laptop or better not? I am just not sure wheter or not 
64bit will come trough this year on Laptops, and how well is it (and 
will it be) supported by FreeBSD. I know that there are some Internet 
Sites which try to maintain some data about linux / unix on laptops, but 
i found them to be quite outdated. I am looking for a Workstation 
replacement kind of Laptop, and it must have a DVI out for my Monitor. I 
kind of would like to go with 64bit, since its supposedly the future, if 
this isnt quite the time for 64bit Laptops yet, please someone educate me.

If there is anyone out there, that can recommend a new Laptop (Price is 
not an issue) that runs FreeBSD nicely, please let me know, i would most 
appreciate it.

Thanks and best regards,
