  1. Any experience with Acer Aspire 1356LMi ?

    I am getting an Acer Aspire 1356LMi laptop I am going to get one with the
    Radeon 9200 graphics. The standard one has ProSavage which I don't
    believe has good 3D support for the current (4.3.0) XFree86 or the next
    version (4.4.0) although apparently it was supported in 4.2.0. THe Radeon
    9200 I understand does have 3D graphic support. It is going to cost me
    about 1450 Euro which is the price I find online in Germany. Any
    Comments?

    A couple of things occurred to me since I posted this so I post a
    followup. Are Acer laptops available in America?
    If not is there something comprable to this list in Europe? I speak German
    also.

    Now it tiurns out to be an Acer Aspire 1355LMi_ATI. Same specs except 2600+
    instead of 2800+ and 60GB drive instead of 40GB. And it comes the
    following Wednesday Nov 26!! Still waiting.
