Thumbs up Whoooaaa! ASUS UL30A Slackware Certified

So guys, I just installed slack 13.37 on my old (not too old) Asus Ul30A....

And its flying! I am like Whooaa! Even videos and everything. I have never come across such a fast system before. Everything is like clockwork.

So I am officially Certifying the ASUS UL30A.

My other 2 laptops Acer D270 and 722 killed slackware... It made me switch distros for a few weeks.

Man I am loving this speed... KDE Rocks on it! No prob with videos.

However I have not installed Flash yet.. using youtubes HTML5 instead which is lagging.

However Mpegs and Videos on hardisk work great.

There are plenty of systems that Linux works on flawlessly without the need for extra stuff to work, but there are some exceptions. Nvidia Optimus is one well know problem for laptops as is Broadcom wireless hardware.
