Maybe not right place for this question, but i'll ask it either.
I'm going to buy notebook and i've found an interesting one based on
Transmeta CPU. But i'm yet in doubt because of videochip. It is XGI
Volari XP5. Did anybody used such hardware on bsd? I know that there's
a linux driver for that chip, what chances to get this driver working on
Pretty slim. Besides, TransMeta has announced that they're going to stop
developing CPU's, so it's a Crusoe, which is a bad performer (and on par
with the Pentium-M where power usage is concerned). XGI's Volari series
aren't the best of graphics cards either, with only the V8 Pro
performing adequately when its price is concerned. I strongly advise you
to go the Intel Pentium-M path, perhaps with the whole Centrino
marketing stuff. Both the internal 855GM chipsets graphics adapter and
the popular ATi and nVidia adapters work perfectly under Xorg.
