Asus K70IC is not a mobile pc, but a mobile workstation. The batteries provide to you about two hour working time. I am using this notebook with Ubuntu 10.04, and I running many (sometimes 4 or 5) virtual machines simultanusly. The 4 Gb ram, and the CPU runs smoother.

There are some issues with this notebook.
* HIBERNATING: Ubuntu can not start up from hibernated state
* RESTART: The “Restart” command does not work. System shutdown done well, but not restarts the notebook: just hangs.
* Splash screen: When splash screen enable, sometimes the X Server can not start, or the video driver (nvidia) crahses. In this cases you have to reinstall the drvier. If you switch off splash screen by kernel option the system starts correctly. (To see the messages not nice, but interesting)
After half-a-year using period I found my notebook works more faster with Ubuntu 10.04 than Windows 7.
