I think good (or at least publicly available) hardware specs would go a
long way in solving graphics problems. If you want to spend money, give
it to projects that create hardware with freedom/openness as a core
value [1].

I'd like to add that the FSF has a page with certified hardware that Respects Your Freedom [11]. Recently, some laptops with Coreboot were added to the list [12]. It could be a good reference when buying new hardware that works well with free distributions.
