ATI HD550v

Forums: 

I am planning to replace my 7-year-old Dell Inspiron laptop with something more modern.

I am considering the Inspiron 14R. It has a fast processor, and it's a good compromise between weight and screen size. However, the video card I am thinking about getting is the 1GB ATI Radeon HD550V.

I can't find many reviews about the compatibility with linux, particularly Fedora. Has anyone used this video card? Does anyone have experience with the Inspiron 14[r]? The hardware, other than the video card, seems pretty standard. The wireless card is a Dell (probably Broadcom), so it should work without any problems.

Thanks.
