Ugh, not a nice topic. My current laptop came with it so I decided to try it out. Two months in, it froze and would not reboot as it had apparently crawled back up it's own ass and corrupted the MBR. Yes, I know there are realtively easy ways to repair an MBR, but I really shouldn't have to do that. Xubuntu was prompty installed. Incidentally, this is the EXACT same straw-that-broke-the-camel's-back issue I had back in 2005 with XP - which was what led me to move to Linux (Fedora back then) in the first place.
Oh, and the damn thing (even with minimal Aero enhancements) eats up 1.3 gigs of ram in idle. How quaint.
Um, what integrated amplifier is this?
