i've looked at both an acer and lenovo models and like the lenovo  
model better.

as for linux... no way.. had too many hack experiences during the  
early years. that's why i made the switch to bsd. i would like to make  
my own port (super-port?), build a distro, and dump it onto a machine.  
haven't tested on virtual machine yet, but think that would be the  
smartest method.

thanks again.
