Haarscheurtjes zijn normaal als een band wat ouder wordt en vormen geen gevaar, het is geen teken dat de band direct vervangen moet worden.

I bought this laptop in december 2010, and I've worked with various Ubuntu-versions, Linux Mint and Puppy Linux versions. All were performing very well on this machine. I had no issues with the hardware, not even with the ATI graphics card. Everything works right out of-the-box so far…

I don't know how this laptop behaves with other distro's, but I would definitely recommend this laptop if you are running Debian-like distro's. And I expect it also works on other major distro's. ;-)
