If the dell is like all the others I've used recently, the keyboard will
suck, and it'll be creaky and plasticky.
I have a mobility Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo Floozle XXL with go faster
stripes. It works in linux if you have X > 4.3.0 (or do a chipID thing
to make it think it's a 9500). That's 2D only though.. no 3D, and I
don't know about TVout etc. I haven't tried the binary only drivers yet.
