I’ve got my second laptop. It’s Compal - Core2duo, 4GB of RAM and 250GB SATA disk, NVIDIA 8600GT. I’ll generally use it to work and develop things. Memory is needed to run a couple of virtual machines, and Core2duo VT bit will help too. Use of Broadcom 43xx wifi makes me use Linux on that machine. Apart from Broadcom and touchpad, this machine is nice. :-)
UPDATE: In NetBSD-current there is bwi driver for Broadcom.
