View Full Version : [ubuntu] New Installation on a Laptop

January 16th, 2009, 11:47 AM
Hello all!

I am currently looking on propertyroom.com at the various laptops for a machine to buy for a new (to me) Linux box and was wondering about the general compatibility issues one would expect from such a task. To narrow it down, does Ubuntu have issues with recognizing wireless NICs?

I'm a very green Ubuntu user, with all experience being on desktops and the ease with which the OS recognized all of the hardware. But I recognize that laptops can be challenging little beasties.

So with that, I hope to hear some experiences people have had. :)

Have a read through these links, not sure how up to date the list is though.
