Aspire 3830TG-6431 running Ubuntu Linux


I expect that the sound problem will eventually be fixed. I'm not optimistic about seeing a seamless solution to the Powersmart/Optimus problem. Still, I can usually find a power outlet. For Linux users there are probably better laptops out there...

fast, responsive keyboard, reasonable mouse pad, sharp display, thin and light, nifty looks, Cuda for scientists, runs at 800 MHz most of the time - so it is relatively cool

Running Ubuntu 11.04, there is no sound. This is an already reported bug but as of 8/30/2011 no one has been assigned to fix it afaik. Powersmart is not available on Linux, so the battery provides for only three hours. NVidia Optimus does not work,...

Nothing I did not expect from a 13 inch laptop. The keyboard flex I read about is not even noticeable for me

gaming requires cooling


Other reviewers have stated the case seems flimsy and flexible but I do not find that to be an issue. The laptop is solid enough for regular use. non removable battery - I dont necessarily consider this a con but I do intend on replacing/upgrading the...

Graphics - Can run all current titles with adequate graphics settings; will be able to run future titles on low/med settings. Runs Starcraft 2 @ 1080p on my external monitor with med/high settings ; Very Portable - For a laptop that can run games and...

Cooling - Honestly I personally have not had a problem keeping the laptop cool but that because its sitting on my desk on a cooling pad. Also I bring the cooling pad with me when I take it other places ; Its totally possible to use this laptop casually...
