Hardware review: TuxBox Computers SportCoat M750 Laptop
It’s been almost seven years since I stopped buying desktops for personal computing, and since then, I am always under the impression that buying a new laptop to run Linux on is a bigger challenge that it needs to be.
Over the years, I’ve spent countless hours on linux-laptop.net (and others) trying to get the most out of my hardware working under Linux. Things like proprietary drivers for video cards, network adapters and wireless, sound and modem support were virtually always making the life of the Linux geek a bit harder.
About five months ago, I purchased a laptop from a fairly unknown place called allaroundgeeks.com . They have since re-branded their computers as TuxBox Computers, Inc. The laptop I purchased is called the SportCoat M750, which is an MSI laptop that can be purchased from several vendors.
