Got a little new toy that is able to run Linux very well, since I brought with me two Ubuntu Live CDs (of version 8.04 LTS).
It features a Core 2 Duo T7250 processor. It has support for its 1.3 Megapixel webcam out-of-the-box, since the webcam uses the the USB device Video Class protocol. The only problem is that I don't know how to use mencoder to grab a video from it. And its speakers sound is so quiet. Way too much quiet, even at maximum volume.
The macbook that I saw used things from Broadcom, which is not a company that likes Free Software.
