Summary: UPDATE: After 4 months of System 76 telling me that my laptop had "fallen through the cracks", they returned what they told me was my computer. Except that it wasn't. That' right, they sent someone else's computer to me, with a little bag with three loose screws in it.
Summary: I love this computer. It's a beast. Fast, powerful and beautiful. The only slight drawback is the placement of the speakers. This computer can easily handle coding on Eclipse, streaming media from my samba server, editing an image in GIMP while downloading torrents on one of the many virtual...
Everything about this laptop is pretty much perfect

Summary: Everything about this laptop is pretty much perfect... screen display is excellent. It's fast. It has linux pre-installed. Everything works. My only complaint is the keyboard. The layout is pretty bad. "home" "end", "page up" and "page down" all have to be accessed by a function key.
Summary: This laptop is very well made and quite powerful. This would be perfect except for three issues: 1) the touchpad is very large(which shouldn't be a problem) except that even after selecting the "disable touchpad while typing" option, I still ending clicking on other areas of my screen while typing.
AVOID - please please avoid - By from a reputable company.

Summary: what rubbish. the speakers are essentially useless. the screen isn't bright enough and is no, by any stretch of the imagination rue HD - it remains fuzzy. I bought one of these and from the second I had it I was disappointing.
Makes a great linux/bsd laptop but keyboard is lacking
