I don't know terribly much about NEC laptops per se (but they sponsor
the Davis Cup! They must be good!), but if you have any queries about
laptop hardware being supported, then you should give the Linux on
Laptops page a peruse:


You might also get lucky, and have some Linux compatiblity information
on NEC's corporate pages.

On a hearsay note, when I was looking around to buy my laptop (a couple
of years ago now) what I saw written about NEC Versas and their Linux
compatibility was quite glowing.  The situation may have changed now, or
my memory could be faulty.

    Some say this is an exciting time.  But it is the excitement of
    a teenager playing chicken, his car barreling down the highway,
    hands held far from the steering wheel.
