Asus K45VD

Introduction

Well, i bought this laptop with a pre-installed windows 8 OS, i liked it from the beggining, but i always wanted to try linux (mainly ubuntu) so i decided to download it and install it.

At the beggining it was hard as f**k to install because the laptop uses EFI Firmware, but after some hours i made it, and i just started to try it out.

Sadly, you can't say any special thing about ubuntu on the K45VD, it just run as always, i mean, there's no special thing here over ubuntu on another laptops, it's not great, is just the common Ubuntu running on a common laptop [which is frustrating after my meeting with the Asus Smart Gesture on Windows 8]
