Comes a time to ask again and again the same question.
More I read, less I know. Just as I found that candida-
te for my new laptop, dell latitude 13 comes with anti-
glare screen and all hardware well supported, forums
reveal that it's 320gb hard drive heats a lot. It makes
vostro v13 better runner, but...
How sounds the idea to have a place on freebsd site for
such kind of data/wiki? Laptop recommendations should
include new models only, since older ones are not easy to
find in usable condition. Also, making a go for home
node, cold and quiet box, with parts fine under freebsd
is not so obvious. Especially for newer graphic chips.
It shows that my first idea to get cold phenom II on the
integrated mobo fails on almost all parts.
Yep, some kind of wiki, saying "phenom to use under 8.2
to be cold and chip to find for amd mobo to take small
amount of power might be..."
At last, sad thing is that only before mentioned dell
comes supported and with matte screen. What is the box
you would recommend, not going deep into past decade?
Best regards all
