Works on Fedora 13!
Pros: Very small and portable - Wireless N
Cons: None at this time.
Overall Review: I installed Fedora 13 on an old Compaq 2800T which did not have wireless. The Linux drivers on the included disk would not compile. I downloaded the latest Linux drivers from Realtek's website and voila!
Pros: 1. Price 2. 17" Screen - Beautiful 3. 256M Dedicated Graphics 4. Free mouse and carrying bag. 5. Solid construction. Feels much more expensive! You are not going to find a better sub $1000 budget gaming laptop!
Cons: Even though I rated this at 5 stars I still have a gripe! This was for a TL-58. The box is labeled TL-58 (1.9GHz) but the processor is indeed a TL-56(1.8GHz). Disappointing since this item is supposed to be a TL-58. Not sure who to blame for that.
Overall Review: The other stick of ram is indeed under the keyboard. The shape of it will not allow it to fit most backpacks. Most pockets measure only 11" across. The pocket that holds this laptop should measure at least 12" across or stretch. Hardly any bloatware. I removed Norton and MS Office as they were both trials. No issues with Vista and no desire to switch to XP.
I love this thing!!!
Pros: Cheap. Supports multiple memory cards while bring all of my rear panel connections to the front.
Cons: Slots could use dust covers.
Overall Review: This device was a piece of cake to install in my XP system. Did not need the driver disk at all. XP recognized every drive and port on reboot!!!
