    BIOS looks good.
    Tried 86+, ran it for a few hours.

    Re: Project: A trustworthy Ubuntu pen drive

    I think Puppy is probably the best way to accomplish what you are trying to do. It is pretty much made to run from Flash Drives. I think you can even run it from a DVD and use the DVD to save...

    Re: Good gaming laptop under $550-ish?

    I did a quick read of the laptops on that list. I really would not recommend them for gaming at all. I think some of them may have a bit of difficulty even with middle of the road games.
