Got myself a new laptop ASUS G50vt-x1.
Pretty decent machine
SATA 7200 rpm 320 gig hard drive
DVD/CD Burner with LightScribe
4 gigs DDR
Nvidia 9800m gs
1.3 megapixel web cam
and on and on
Anyways, this thing is just incredible for a laptop, and just about everything worked out of the gate with openSUSE 11.1.
The only drivers I installed were beta nvidia drivers, and drivers for the oled display.
It has a small led display just above the keyboard that is capable of displaying whatever you want if creative enough to make some new scripts for it. I however am not that creative and stuck with what it offers.
May be kind of silly to some folks but I am loving it. It’s a great way to polish off a great OS on a great laptop by displaing some Linux goodness.
I am not much of a camera man, but made a small video showing how it looks.
Flash video, so you need flash plugin capable browser to see the vid.
