    Default toshiba a200-1cr distro and hardware compatibility challenge

    Hi,
    I'm new to the forum and new horizons. I recently decided that I got tired of Windows. I'm going to try other OS. Mac OS X is first =] I have a Toshiba A200-1CR laptop. I couldn't exactly find my laptop category in compatibility lists so here is my specs:

    IntelŪ PentiumŪ dual-core processor T2080 / 1.73 GHz / 533 MHz / 1 MB
    1,024 (512 + 512) MB DDR2 RAM (667 MHz)
    120 GB S.M.A.R.T. 5,400 rpm sata hard drive
    IntelŪ GMA 900 / shared / up to 251 MB total available graphics memory
    Wi-FiŪ 802.11b/g integrated

    Is my hardware compatible and which distro should I use?

    Thanks.

    Check the HCL I think your lappy is there, it will answer your question, but try with iPC ;P

    Does the distro have anything to do with hardware compatibility? You advise me to check the list but you still recommend me iPC. So I assume my hardware is compatible... I couldn't exactly find my laptop series: there are a201, a205 even a200-1nr but not mine. I'm worried to encounter a problem I can't solve.

    Yeh but you can check with those, usually have similar hardware so if they did it you can do it too ;P

    Try with iPC or another one like leo4all or kalyway, theres lots of distros out there, Im just telling you one of the most popular I guess, with lots of kexts (drivers)

    Given that my hardware is compatible with the OS, I can choose whichever distro I want... I will try iPC, thank you =] (And I will also have the other ones on different DVDs in case one doesn't comply)
