All, 


I have been waiting for these to come out for awhile now. I finally saw one at Wal-Mart over the weekend, and was pretty impressed. I cannot find anything on the inter-webs about how well these run Linux. However, I was wondering if anyone has heard or read anything about this, or has plunked down the change to get one of these, and try to install *nix on it:

=============================================================== From: William Wade ------------------------------------------------------ I have been looking at them as well (my wife needs a new laptop. Mostly looking in the ultraportable (to include AMD and Intel (stupid ultrabook (tm) (from my point of view not marketing) ) 13-14" range. Expensive stuff however). Screen is too large for me. What what I have seen so far is that there is no reason that it should not work out of the box with a latest kernel, but no actual reports.
