Re: Looking for an AMD Laptop to run ubuntu 12.04
I do not own either of those laptops, and after searching in different hardware testing places, I am getting nothing. In the past, and what I have gathered is:
HP laptops work well with Ubuntu
Asus laptops are some of the best, if not the best, with Ubuntu.
AMD/ATI can hate on Xorg at times.
3D support, that I know of, isn't really here yet.
With that said, if you can test these in the stores, that would be great. Just bring a live USB stick and test them out. If you are nice enough to them, at a big box store, they'll let you do it. Locals are going to be fine with it. Run the Ubuntu Hardware Test, and that will go over everything with it.
