    Maybe there is a difference in the SSD being shipped in the States and Europe.
    I think mine is a special BestBuy version. No camera (i dont use it on my other laptop so no problem). And 4GB SSD was all on a SSD PCI card NOT on motherboard.... Also no build in Bluetooth.
    So I have now 32GB Patriot SSD and 2GB RAM (NewEgg to the rescue) and BT3 on SD card ready to be tested .

    It was 4GB with junky (Xendros) Linux in bestbuy.
    Person from my office went to buy one after I brought mine to work, and was told 4 times "You do understand this is Linux and not windows?"

    Sin-cerely,

    That's got to be the stupidest thing I've read this morning. I'm sure that will change once I get to work and read my email though.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    I doubt that you really enjoy your work then. But from now on I will blame everything which is going wrong in my live on Ubuntu.

    No money? Because of Ubuntu
    No girl? Because of Ubuntu
    No job? Because of Ubuntu

    Doing a Google Image search for Ubuntu with safesurf turned off seems to disagree with your 2nd item of blame.

    Actually I really like my job. Some people should just never have a pc.
