If you plan on using more than 2 gigs of ram with this laptop it WILL NOT BOOT PROPERLY. This is also an issue with Windows Xp (it works on Vista), Asus currently has no plans of fixing this issue though. [EDIT: There are possible workarounds for this issue that can be found throughout the community…]
Over all other than not being able to use my extra 2 gigs of ram everything runs pretty flawlessly on it, I am using Ubuntu 8.10 64bit.
