Ok, I have a GateWay MP8708 and there was a recall on the battery issued with my laptop. I have applied for the recall and come to find out that they don't have the battery replacement anymore so, they (gateway) has offered me a brand new laptop (nv7915u) for free (well I have to send them my current one)...

Here are the specs for the nv7915u:

and here is the link for my current laptop:

This is obviously a great upgrade, I'm just wandering how well this laptop will support Ubuntu 9.10 64-bit. I have just recently given up on windows and this will come with the new Windows-7 which I have no experience with.

So please, let me know what you think (especially if you have the new model GateWay)...
