  - Plug-and-Play (PnP) support in hardware 


  - Support for USB 


  - Support for FireWire 

unimportant, i guess. never heard of it.

  - Multi-processor support (the computer can use multiple CPUs at once) 

Wait a minute -- how did this question end up in a hardware section? The
original intent of it was "how important is it for Linux to support SMP?"
Now it's asking about motherboard firmware/bios smp support? This isn't
asking what I originally wanted.

  - Speed of graphics rendering 

important. it should be fast, but it's not like i play quake or anything.

  - Overall speed of machine 

crucial. i spend way too much time with my machines to accept anything
