I'm typing this on an Acer Ferrari 3400.  FreeBSD installs in a breeze,
after rebuilding a kernel with "cpufreq" I can run powerd to reduce
power consumption as much as possible, and the only two parts that I
haven't had a change to configure yet (during the last 2-3 days) are:

	- Wireless networking
	- Internal modem (this will probably never work)
