I know that when I read your posts about it I decided to hold off on getting one. I purchased
another machine instead (which has an intel3945 wireless chipset and as a result works
wonderfully with Fedora 8 and Fedora 9 Preview's version of NetworkManager.) I think a lot of
other people that are interested in using GNU/Linux are at the stage where they realize that
it's easier to buy hardware that's supportable by the community AND that hardware actually
exists -- mainly from Intel.
