What is NB?
Tell me more about that registration.
A NB is a NoteBook for the lazy .

Registration is something most manufacturers offer, and for some (Like Apple) it's even required to get warranty.
For most other manufacturers, it's only required if you buy additional warranty.
Registering provides little to no benefit, it's just data mining ...

I just tested FreeBSD 7.1-RELEASE @ Dell e6400, lots of ACPI errors, without ACPI panic on CPU thermal control, I did not even tried to run x11 @ x4500, if you want to use FreeBSD and not waste time trying imho stick to Centrino 2 laptops (T61/R61/d630/d830), Montevina is currently too new and unsupported.
Thanks, I hadn't even looked at FreeBSD compatibility yet.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
