nice computer, big screen.. all works out of the box with ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. only thing causing problems is the build-in bluetooth, which cant be found by my s2.. brightness settings are also rather crude..
other than that, no problems..

Many people think that just because you delete something off of your computer, or other device, that it's gone forever. This is not true and more people are finding this out the hard way.
