I've a Dell Inspiron 2500 and it works well with NetBSD (as well as
with Linux and the two other BSD). New Dell models should work, too,
except for the crapy winmodem they put in it... Don't know for the
build in netword adaptor, but it should be ok as it's a RealTek chip.
If i had to buy a laptop, now, i would seriously consider new Apple
models (iBook models, as my wallet would'nt support
Powerbooks...). They're really cute ;-)
