Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

Dell Inspiron 8600c

Well, just got me a nice Dell 8600c. Linux certified? No, but I got every piece of hardware going just fine. This includes:

- Centrino CPU with automatic CPU frequency scaling (600MHz-2GHz)
- Wifi a/b/g (Truemobile 1450) with ndiswrapper
- NVIDIA 64MB @ 1920x1200 (niiiice!)
- Bluetooth(tm)
- Ethernet/modem
- Firewire / USB 2.0
- Touchpad
- DVD+RW burner
- Sound

Runs like a dream with Ubuntu 4.10, everything but the nvidia card was autodetected. Highly recommended.. ;)
