I like ZaReason, when they use ATI or Intel video, not nVidia

Hopefully ZaReason will start sourcing only laptops that use ATI video instead of nVidious. This is what happens when drivers are proprietary, you can't fix problems like that system lockup issue you described. AMD/ATI are going back to what they used to do in the 1990's and early 2000's, publish the programming specs w/o NDA. Good drivers are now starting to appear once again because of this.

Same with Intel, there are FOSS drivers that work very well because Intel made their drivers FOSS. Different approach, similar result.

Therefore, look for laptops with ATI or Intel video. Vote with your wallet.
