Just wondering how I can find out what does and doesn't work on this computer. I bought it and love it, but I'm not too keen on Windows 8, which feels very disjointed.

I realize that t his is a relatively new computer, it's got the new C-70, and my buddy told me that the 7xxx graphics cards have a lot of issues in GNU/Linux. Thanks for your help and understanding in advance :)

This post seems to say most things are working.

Our school is ordering 3 of these to test Ubuntu compatibility and I will post what I find. We have used the Acer Aspire One 722 with Ubuntu and had good results so we hope the 725 is similar.

Maybe try dual booting and seeing how it performs.
