    Question Question about Ubuntu on Fujitsu t900, please help.


    I am very new to the world of Ubuntu and I am about to purchase a laptop. I am an artist who is very intrigued by all the options on the linux platform.

    I beleive it will be the Fujistu t900.

    I have installed and tinkered with Ubuntu Studio on a borrowed laptop (dell inspirion 1545) and have a lot of hassles with the wifi set up and still havent found a way to get it to work.

    My questions are

    • With the fujitsu t900, will I see any major hurdles for ubuntu studio?
    • Do you advise I install original ubuntu and then make it into ubuntu studio?
    • Does Ubuntu have anything that Ubuntu Studio does not?

    I plan to order the laptop with this config and add ram later

    Intel Core i7-620m 2.66 ghz
    Dual Digitizer(pen plus capacitive multitouch)
    wxga led display with webcam
    2 gb ram
    160 gb hard drive
    dual-layer dvd writer
    Atheros xspan hb92 OR Intel centrino 6200
    Bluetooth wireless v2.1

    Here are the full specs

    I understand that a lot of that hardware is on the t5010 that fujitsu offers and seems to work in ubuntu, due to this page

    Though I have not been able to find any info about the wifi options or the dual digitizer options.

    Which wifi chip will be better and less hassel with Ubuntu?
    I am leaning toward the Atheros.

    Will the dual digitizer work with ubuntu?
    I am thinkiing of getting the dual digitizer.

    I know there are a lot of questions, I have been looking for the answeres for hours upon hours.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you for your time.

    It is a new laptop though maybe someone had some info

    on the dualdigitizer on fujitsu products?

    Or maybe the artheos hb92?

    I realize this is an old thread, but I have recently decided to purchase a T730 which seems to have similar specs to the T900. I found a site which may be of help to you.

    Still waiting for my T730 to arrive. Ebay has some great deals on refurbished products.
