I do now know about the other persons, but I swear to NEVER EVER
buy an ACER product again.... 

Their bios is buggy, (does not map pci devices...),
the dma is broken, the memory dumps core,  and
they do not care about the users....

I bought a Lenovo with AMD vision (very cheap and good notebook)  and I
it works very well.
