    Does anybody know if Asus N61JQ with core i7 and ATI 5730 will work on Ubuntu?

    Re: MSI X340 slim - install review

    I have been reading this thread, and I have a very basic question regarding the install of Ubuntu on the X340.

    Can't I just use an external DVD Drive and boot the Ubuntu live CD from there and install?

    Is it necessary to go through the USB disk route?

    I am actually planning to buy the x340 and I already have an external DVD drive. I am sure that the bios has the option to set the boot device to DVD/CD drive right!

    Correct me if I am wrong so that I don't end up having to fight during install

    I did that the day before yesterday. Worked fine.

    Edit:
    Has anyone tried out the bluetooth? I just noticed that its not working on my x340 with 10.04!

    That's great! So no need to mess around with Bootable USBs and stuff.

    Re: MSI X340 slim - install review

    Working with ubuntu 10.04 on my x340 i now noticed some bugs. Does someone have problems with bluetooth? The Fn+F9 combination doesn't work, no word in dmesg. The second thing is, when i deplug the power cable, it always shows up a notification, saying that it failed to go in suspend/hibbernation mode and my accu power is enough for 2min. After clicking cancel to all, its still running and the accu-meter says 2hours power left.

    Any suggestions?

    I experience same bug. Just google it, and you will find the way to disable this policy as a quick fix.

    Anyone get the x340 to overclock? It would be nice to watch some full screen youtube videos without it freezing. I know its been a long time since this laptop was published but it would still be fun.
