Hardware, Embedded Systems San Jose-based sent us one of their best-selling laptops, the LC2430. We've used it for more than a month with four different distributions and here's what we think about it.

I have one - not recommended
by bayerwerke on Sat 6th Nov 2004 02:17 UTC

A customer bought one of these for me. I would not recommend it. It is actually a Uniwill 755ia. I received it with SuSE 9.1 preinstalled and dual booting with Windows 2000. The Linux installation was botched and I had many problems with the machine until I performed a reinstallation myself. I am not much into games but Tux Racer was part of the original software installation and it would not run because hardware accelleration was not enabled. Also there would be times when the machine would run like it was a 2.8Mhz cpu and it became unusable. When I reinstalled I disabled ACPI support and it has be fine since then. This machine is less expensive everywhere else you can buy it. It sells under a variety of names.
