Hi, Kostas.  I don't have the old laptop to hand at the moment, but I know it 
has an old ATi video card, running the standard, free, driver.  Nothing 
special at all.  I was totally amazed at how usable the system feels, now 
that it has the extra ram, but it served me well enough without it when I 
needed a temporary mail server.
