Compaq Presario C751NR Notebook
There is a young gentleman I know looking to make the switch to Linux after having an experience with Vista.
He bought a new laptop - as mentioned in the subject line of this thread - which came preconfigured with Vista Home Premium. Of course, he can't run any games on it such as Diablo or Resident Evil, and this seems to be commonplace if you read various internet forums. It seems Vista Ultimate handles these games well, but a lesser Vista is ridden with graphical glitches, sound errors, and the like. He's already experiencing system slowdown / crappy performance too. After 3 weeks.
In any case, I googled Linux on Laptops, and found a list of all different vendors. Under Compaq however, the C751NR was not listed.
What do you think? Ubuntu? Mint? Does anyone have any direct knowledge of this notebook?
