    1. About what?  Do you have anything specific?  Otherwise your comment is merely a form of baseless fear mongering.

      1. Yes actually. When Liliputing posted this same deal 2 months ago I jumped on it. My IdeaPad S205 came and I didn’t like it at all. The screen viewing angles are junk, the Fn key is where the Control key should be, it’s large and heavy, and it uses a program called Keys Recovery. Basically you push a recovery button on the laptop and a hidden patrician will factory restore Windows 7 x64. 

        This would have been great but I wanted to use Linux on the machine. So, I wiped the HDD and installed Ubuntu. This bricked the system because the S205 motherboard kept trying to find Keys Recovery on boott. I tried to fix the problem with the restore CD’s I made but the machine kept getting stuck at the splash screen.

        I quickly returned the S205 and bought a trusty Asus Eee PC 1215b which works 100% with Ubuntu 11.04.

        Specific enough?
