Anyone have luck installing openSUSE on an All-in-One media pc

I am looking at some of the all in one computers such as:

HP - 23" Touch-Screen TouchSmart All-In-One Computer - 6GB Memory - 1TB
Hard Drive
Model: 520-1050 pc
SKU: 3435395

Toshiba - 23" Touch-Screen All-In-One Computer - 6GB Memory - 1TB Hard Drive
Model: DX735-D3302
SKU: 4672992

Dell - 23" Touch-Screen Inspiron One All-In-One Computer - 8GB Memory -
1TB Hard Drive
Model: IO2321-6444MS
SKU: 4830161

I want to be able to use linux plus watch tv on it when taking breaks.

I have googled but have not found any results for installing linux on
any of these types of devices.

Has anybody had any luck putting openSUSE on one?

Thank you,

Eric Meddleton

If no one replies noting their experience, then you could try booting to a liveCD, or to a liveUSB, and see if that boots ok.

wrt playing movies, a key question may be if the Internet functionality works (so as to be able to update the multimedia to packages that are not crippled) and how well the integrated graphics functions. A liveCD should help you obtain an assessment of that.

Of course if one does not yet own such a unit, then it becomes more problematic to boot to a liveCD or liveUSB as a store may not allow one to do so.

Thank you for responding oldcpu. I tried to convince one of the sales
guys to let me try to boot up a live usb but he was not so inclined. I
may have had better luck with the openSUSE live cd I got from a linux
expo because it looks more legitimate. I can understand that a usb
stick could be full of malware and have heard stories where someone
drops these things near businesses or government offices in the hopes
that someone would put them in there office computer to see what it on it.

I am going to hold off for now on getting one of these things.
