Just have setup an ASUS F201E with a SSD drive and Ubuntu on it. I will use that setup to test out some minimal setups and Ubuntu software.
This looks like a really good working machine.
- Fast and responsive
- Price of the complete setup together 300 Euros
- Lightweight like a Macbook Air
- I say all software free that I basically need beside special development stuff for OS X
- Dropbox works good
- LibreOffice is nice, some compatibility might come up
- web-based iCLoud on an Ubuntu Laptop might be interesting
- keyboard not that good as a MacBook one
- trackpad strange if you are used to MacBook, with external mouse is ok, probably with more EMACS use this will be irrelevant 😉
- battery life not 5 hours or more but about 3 when you save
- but Hei, at least I know more or less what eats up the disk space on my machine.
- Some syncing difficult, so why is there no Evernote client for Ubuntu, the ones I tried have not made me enthusiast .
- missing Jottacloud client
So more to come.
