Linux On Laptops

This went EXTREMELY easy, and I don't know JACK about Linux. Well maybe I know jack, but I've never met his brother.

I love my laptop, it has been a workhorse for me for over a year. The only drawback of this model is the battery on runs a little over an hour. If you are looking to get this laptop, grab a couple extra batteries.
