I got this late 2010 11" MacBook Air. I'm having issues with NVIDIA graphics, especially with GNOME Shell.

I'm thinking about selling this to switch to the new MacBook Pro, particularly the entry level 13" (see specs here), because of the Intel HD Graphics 3000. I assume that it will be more FOSS-friendly.

I just want to point out that there are non-negotiable reasons why I'm keeping an Apple hardware at the moment, so let's keep this on topic.

  • Will the MacBook Pro Early 2011 work better with Ubuntu than the Air Late 2010?
  • Any other factors than the graphics hardware?
  • Should we expect better NVIDIA graphics anytime soon?

Check the hardware against the Canonical component catalog. That might help you out.
