All this sounds strange, because i bought this very notebook for my wife 22 
days ago, installed 6.2-PRE and it works totally stable for almost a month 
now. Here she is with this book:  Looks pretty 
happy, doesn't she? :-)))  
The only thing is that this book doesn't reboot or shut the power down when i 
tell him to 'reboot' or 'reboot -p'. It just syncs discs and hands with no 
explanations. But it works just fine.
