Dell Latitude X1 - dream laptop for Haiku
To all of you looking for a real hardware to run Haiku on, I can fully recommend Dell Latitude X1.
Every single component of this machine runs out of the box after Haiku installation (except SD and CF card readers of course).
This tiny 12" laptop features 1.1GHz Pentium M processor, Intel 915GM graphics card, 30 or 60 GB HDD, 1.280 MB RAM (maximum), Broadcom NetXtreme 5751 Gigabit Ethernet, MiniPCI slot for Wi-Fi card (mine uses Broadcom BCM4318) and weights only 1.14 kg! Did I mention that it is fanless which makes him a perfect choice for silence lovers? I have no idea about the prices of this equipment - but should be cheaper than any new netbook currently available - and its 12" screen and full size keyboard makes him much more comfortable in use. I am a total greenhorn when it comes to Haiku experience - but after installation I felt almost like a Mac user - everything works... no problems at all (however I have no idea how to setup wireless networking - but both network cards are detected and visible in Network preferences). Well, that's it - I just wanted to share my experience with running Haiku on real hardware. Haiku seems to fit perfectly this amazing little piece of hardware.
