    Dell Inspiron E1405 Dual core

    hey all,

    just got a new laptop from dell. the configuration is as follows
    intel core processor "Duo" T2300E 1.66Mhz
    "2 GB DDR2 SDRAM "
    "intel pro wireless 802.11a/g"

    I heard the some linux distro doesnt recognize 2 GB ram and it starts acting weird. Is that true ? I wanted to know which Linux flavor would run hassel free on this notebook. Please comment

    First off I just want to say... sexxxxxy...
    It's to my understanding that most kernels have three settings for RAM
    <1GB & 1GB-4GB & >4GB
    I believe the default is 1-4. For that, you really shouldnt have a problem.
    Also with a system like that I'm sure nearly any distro would run smoothly. Grab a bloated one like suse or debian and load it full of eye candy. At least, thats what I'd do :P
