What have people's experiences with Zacate laptops been like?


I placed an order for a HP dm1z laptop, the new one with AMD's E350 APU. Has anyone been running linux on one of these or other Zacate-based machines? Has it been a battle to make everything work the way it's supposed to? I could hold back a month or more until hardware support has caught up if that's the best course of action.

I always run some distribution of linux on my work notebooks but my guess is support for these little guys is in its early stages and might be spotty.

I'd like to know the same. I'm interested in an AMD Fusion laptop as well!

Since there have been no responses. I'll see if I can write something up when mine arrives. Any specific distributions you'd like to see?

Here is a thread from the Ubuntu forums with a lot of information re: folks' dealings with the Lenovo x120e. I'm not an Ubuntu user but there is a lot here that is of interest anyway:
