Wanted: Linux, a cool running 11=13". Once I found that Jupiter sw would regulate cpu speed I jumpted to buy. Ubuntu-10-4 works well. Screen has about same detail as my 15;6" laptop.
Touchpad buttons do not work well with touchpad to move or size windows.
Only some of the Fn keys work under Ubu, using sw instead for those, I should be able to fix this. Loaded OS not useful so simply repartitioned disk to 6,6,2,balance to allow for two versions of linux, a swap, and data partitions.
Adding Jupiter (ASUS provides similar driver for MS) is not easy for ordinary users.
Without Jupiter, PC runs warm like other laptops. Pity ASUS does not present a loaded Ubuntu with this driver. This is a great and reasonable product, but for work on spreadsheets I prefer my larger notebook. Note I am writing this while watching an opera on HD(compressed previously..
