I was thinking about buying the laptop in the following link:

I was wondering what Asus' reputation was in relations to Linux support.

200 USD more and you can get this one: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B+i7 +Processor+-+Black/9741729.p?id=1218165344675&skuId=9741729&st=asus&cp=1&lp=5

Which is cooler (as in temperature), and has a non-gloss finish (Which I love better than gloss. I WILL NEVER buy gloss finished laptops.)

Yes, I had the liberty to see the laptop linked in my post before the "Coming Soon" went away, as they should be in-stores already.

I saw this one one NewEgg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220696.

So does Asus and Linux tend to play nice?
