I'm about to order a Dell Latitude D820 laptop and I will, of course, be
putting Ubuntu on it!

I'm wondering about support for some of the hardware. If anycone can
confirm or otherwise if this kit works out of the box, I'd be grateful.

My two main concerns are:

Video: Intel 950 chipset; 1920 x 1200 LCD screen
Wireless: IntelPro/Wireless 3945 802.11a/g

If I can find someone local who already has this machine, I'll see if
they will let me boot from the Ubuntu CD.

Or is there somewhere I can find this information?
