I used to use ATI. Accidentally, the last computers I bought had a
NVIDIA card. I heard Linux support of both boards would be similar.

When I bought a new notebook, I tested it with a live linux CD at the
shop. I didn't want to compare all hardware components with internet
lists and search for drivers. Graphics worked, WIFI also out of the box!

My desktop is a Dell machine. Linux support is flawless. Later I read in
a computer magazine, that there are Dell machines where you hardly get
the right drivers. That's why I wouldn't order a machine by mail-order
anymore. Linux isn't supported by Dell, they "recommend" Windows, at
least in Germany.

Oh, shared memory! That's a good aspect.
