    you'll enjoy it.
    8 hours with the brightness high.
    10 hours with brightness all the way down.
    the 3g is great to, i use it when i'm riding shotgun, waiting for an appointment, etc...
    learn to use the ctrl & alt keys makes life easier.
    spacebar & shift spacebar makes going up & down easy.
    watch out for apps & extensions, some leak memory like crazy if you don't log out or shutdown for long periods of time.

    my mom currently has mine, her laptop broke so she's using it till we find a good deal on a new 1 for her. haven't seen my baby in 2 days.

    sign up again, i signed up 3 times, then found 1 at my door.
    i also had friends & family sign up who would give it to me.

    reach out, the odds are 1 in 60,000, the more people you have help you the better your odds.
    i think i had at least 25 people apply, 25 in 60,000 is a lot better than 1.

    its a bit different than my normal computing experience... i plan on using it as much as possible in the next week so that I can get a better feel for how i'll use it.

    has anyone here followed the steps to dual boot with ubuntu? is the ubuntu boot time still good? any thoughts on the subject?
