Seems to run smoothly and it wasn't too difficult to install.

Odd,

I tried installing and kept getting an error, an ebios error/timeout.

Hmmm.... would be nice if we could use the WWAN slot with a PCI-E connector for a second drive, and then dual boot between the two drives.

I ran into a few issues during install, but there is a lot of information out there, it's as simple as typing your error or problem in Google.

For example your error seems to point to a problem with the media or image itself (DVD).

It's hard to say exactly, because I don't know your exact install setup.

Right now I have both, if you have an 8GB you'll only have about 1GB free.

I was reading that you could make some changes to free up some space but I haven't done that yet.

Just curious, what did you use for a DVD drive? I need to get one, but don't feel like dropping $85 on the Dell one.

Hi can you tell me if the Bluetooth works?

Also does the headphone socket and mic work?

How about performance speed? Is it speedy when you view a photo intensive website?
