imortality is right, os x is on the slower end as far as BSD systems go. My 866mhz P3 desktop ran PC-BSD (based on FreeBSD) MUCH FASTER than the current gen eMacs and iBooks.

now i have an Acer Ferrari 4005WLMi AMD turion x86_64 and all works perfect as well with SuSE linux 10 DVD
in fact i use various laptops under SuSE Linux since 1998 - earlier several different toshiba models - now Acer laptops.
all laptops had all basic functions fully supported so far.
acer has all features fully supported - hence i stay with acer for now.

|The things that do NOT work in 64-bit Windows OR 64-bit Linux is 32-bit video codecs, and Macromedia's flashplayer. What this means is that I cannot view any web site that depends on flash and I cannot view videos that are formatted for 32-bit graphics codecs (nearly every video in existence). This is not acceptable for me... so I use 32-bit Suse 9.3.|
