Hardware, Embedded Systems " bricked a Samsung laptop today. Unlike most of the reported cases of Samsung laptops refusing to boot, I never booted Linux on it - all experimentation was performed under Windows. It seems that the bug we've been seeing is simultaneously simpler in some ways and more complicated in others than we'd previously realised." On a related note, the Linux Foundation's UEFI secure boot system has been released.

Don't buy Samsung laptops. Their HDDs were great but I've heard enough horror stories of late to put them in the pass column for the time being. If I have a customer looking for a laptop i recommend Asus, I've had nothing but good luck from Asus from the EEE to their big 17 inchers, they make nice stuff.
