Linux When I read the article on Slashdot & OSNews that Linare was putting out a sub-$500 notebook, I immediately jumped on the deal. I purchased a laptop directly from Linare in early February. Their site stated that I would receive the laptop in 2-4 weeks. I waited in anticipation.

What Did You Expect?

The slots for upgrading the RAM are either (a) on the bottom side of the laptop under a metal cover (like on my Dell) or (b) under the keyboard (like my sister's Toshiba).

The price you paid was rock bottom. Don't think you'll find anyone else selling a laptop with those components for that price. I'm sure they got flooded with orders (overwhelmed) & not set up to handle them. Maybe even had backorders.

At the very least they should have provided a manual for the laptop. No pdf version on their site either.

Can you also specify what onboard video chipset they use? (only other thing that matters but isn't listed - I believe it to be VIA video; S3 Chrome?).
