the components inside seems very good and are well supported. the wlan works very good if it is from intel (it has opensource drivers and documentation so it works good). you may experience some problems with processor acpi. there&#39;s in this list a discussion of mine with another member about his acpi/processor problems with a core2duo t77. 
<br>the acpi from acer usually is not very good, so yours might work well without problems. i think that it&#39;s best for you to try some new livecd and see what it gets into /proc/acpi/thermal/xxxx/trip_points and /proc/acpi/thermal/xxxx/temperature files. if you&#39;re able to read temperature and you do have the trip points (ie, the cat on the temperature file gives you a degree and if your trip points show you active[0], active[1], passive and critical temperatures in degrees) then you won&#39;t have any problem with the processor driver. control also the /proc/acpi/fan/ directories to see if acpi recognizes the fan(s) in your pc. 
<br>if all this things work then your notebook should run out of the box very well. <br><br><div><span class="gmail_quote">2007/10/16, Zimmerling, Alexander &lt;<a href="mailto:Alexander.Zimmerling@...">Alexander.Zimmerling@...

<br>It comes with Windows Vista and works perfectly with Windows XP. But how<br>about Gentoo? Can I use most of the features this notebook provides<br>(e.g. Intel WLAN)? Does anybody use this notebook already? And can I<br>
reach the 6h battery-uptime, or is it only possible to reach by using<br>Windows and the &#39;battery-manager&#39; (Samsung software-product)?<br><br>kind regards<br><br>Alex<br>--<br><a href="mailto:gentoo-laptop@g.o">
