Obvious omissions

Nice review. The comparison to Apple notebooks came up a few times; it's not unfavourable side by side though.

A few obvious omissions get me though. 3D acceleration... what were they thinking?? Surely if you were going to sell a Linux certified notebook you'd make damn sure that worked as a priority?
What exactly is the good of calling it Linux certified if something like that doesn't work?

dmix would have been a nice addition too. Not that I'm using it - my desktop does hardware mixing, and my laptop only really needs XMMS making noise anyway.

And a final point of complaint - I'm not sure it really benefits from the wide screen. It looks like a 4x3 ratio would have used the space a bit better.

That was all a bit negative anyway; it is great to see Linux being sold with computers, not just expecting users to do it all themselves.
