I could see the video driver being an issue. The Latitude I have at work
has a wide-screen display that needs the special nvidia drivers to work at
an acceptable resolution. Monitoring 24 simultaneous channels would
probably also make a dual-head option something to consider.
I'll have to look into what impact the video driver could have on a later
2.6 kernel that's been configured for low-latency operation.
