I have an HP 6715b AMD based laptop with an ATI x1250 card in it and 3d works great (just loaded this yesterday).  No laughing BUT I don't know how to work compiz and I will be playing with that as I find some time.  I DID have to download the ATI drivers to get it working...FYI.

Just a new piece of info related to the laptop question.

Respondents who want to go down the FreeOS / GPL issue path might want to
change the subject and/or start a new thread.  I'm interested in the outcome
of the great laptop search and I'd like to keep the two discussions separate
if possible.
