Current Model Notebook/MSI U270DX
 
Hi there, would this Notebook work with Linux?
U270DX

Specification Link:
http://www.msi.com/product/nb/U270DX.html

I have tired searching and sending email to manufacturer, but no reply!
Any information or advice, will be appreciated!

talks about the wireless card possibly being problematic. (The page gives a workaround.)

Judging from http://www.msi.com/product/nb/U270DX...r&os=Win8%2064

the card seems to be an Atheros AW-N100H
But as you see from rokytnji's post, that should be Atheros AW-NB100H

I'll blame the fact that it was late here. Thanks for catching it. I've edited my first post (with explanation) so the information is correct.

Thanks for the replies, very much appreciated!
I will buy the lap top, and if the wireless card caused problem, with replace it with one that is know to work on Linux! Thank you again!
