I've been running Fedora 7, and I've delayed upgrading because an important program Maple 11 that I use doesn't appear to run on Fedora 8. I need a new laptop, but since it will be a secondary machine, I don't need anything terribly fancy. I do want to use it to find out what the problem with Maple is before I upgrade my main machine.
The Dell laptops I've looked at all seem to have Intel X3100 built in graphics. Web searching suggests that some people have had problems with Fedora and the Intel X3100, but they seem to have to do with gaming which I don't do.
Can anyone tell me whether I will have trouble with such a laptop and Fedora 8 or beyond?
