if im not mistaken, you should be able to install linux on any laptop, providing it finds your hardware or you get drivers

look, with tweaking you can get it to run on any x86 machine, i mean at least get it to run without graphix/sound/network, but it HAS to basically work on any x86 machine.

ya, any X86 will run linux...

now for all the other hardware you stick in there, thats a different matter sometimes, but really almost anything can be made to work for nix
