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's in this list a discussion of mine with another member about his
acpi/processor problems with a core2duo t77.
the acpi from acer usually is not very good, so yours might work well
without problems. i think that it'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'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'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.
if all this things work then your notebook should run out of the box very
