Summary

It's one of the few laptops that actually has 100% support for every feature in GNU/Linux and doesn't just claim it. Where other companies selling GNU/Linux require non-free drivers and fail miserably at support this laptop has full support for things like suspend to ram with 3D acceleration simultaneously so your battery life isn't horrendous.
