Toshiba Satellite P305D-S8828
I'm looking at a decent laptop with a full size keyboard similar to the model that is in the title of this thread... what i am wondering how compatible this device is with linux and how well it performs when compared to windows.
Toshiba.com ( pictures mainly, spec is wrong from what i read )
Toshiba direct ( proper system specs are here. )
Amazon.com ( mainly pictures, again. )
besides bumping this i thought i would give a quick run down on what my testing revealed, since i got no responses, and also it's worth
the wireless is the Atheros AR5007EG chipset ( works with the latest snapshot of the madwifi wireless hal, see here for details. )
the ethernet is a Marvell Yukon 88E8040T chip, and that is supported, however some kernel modifications might be required.
the webcam is an Chicony USB 2.0 Camera ( VID: 0x04f2, PID 0xB070 )
as for the video, i assume it works considering that linux has
support for the radeon HD3100 integrated graphics.
as for multimedia keys, they all work flawlessly without change, and the keyboard doesn't give any problems, and if i forgot something don't hesitate to ask.
edit: updated some details.
