Hej fellow NetBSD users,

I attented the Systems in Munich and ran a NetBSD booth there. The most 
asked question the Systems was:

Is my laptop able to run NetBSD?

Huh, that's a difficult question!

I would like to work on a NetBSD Laptop model page like the one in 
FreeBSD. (Yeah, I know - the Linuxish people, too). So 
you could help me out with a few answers:

- Does your laptop is able to run NetBSD (3.1/4.x)
- What's the model, type, hardware configuration
- What's working for you? (X11 accel, wireless, modem)
- dmesg/Kernel config file/X11 config file

Send your feedback to and I will sum it up and put it on 
the NetBSD webpage for documentation. I will put a link in the community 
wiki, too - in order to keep this proccess ongoing.

I know reed has already made a page, however it's slightly outdated and I 
think starting a new one will make sense.
