Question Asus G2K-A1; Radeon HD2600 (Dx10), Turion TL-64, Turbo Memory on mainboard ?


Considering adding to my stable very soon, as Eee UMPC is insufficient for video. Any comments from current users/owners, or friends that have this recent model??
Would like Fedora or oSuse for kino (Video-Editing!) Comes w/ M$ H Premium (which it runs like crap!)
Curious about the Turbo Memory boost that was added for vista!

I can't get the sound to work with FC8 on this laptop. The sound-card gets detected, but it doesn't play a snort. That is the main issue for me with this laptop.

Question Implementation of Intel Turbo Memory (ITM) in ANY GNU/Linux distro

Or 64studio 2.1 ?

Curious about the Turbo Memory {1GB split between ready drive & ready boost) that was added for vista, but M$ failed to write all the code!
Still not sure if the AMD model has Turbo memory capability! My G1S-B1 does have it (ATA 8 ?), still considering swapping the mini PCI express card to my other lappy which has an empty slot!

I put in an enhancement request for `Ready Drive' in Fedora 10, not sure how to encourage the development of drivers for a new hardware standard. Am now thinking it might be sweet if the kernel (or parts of it) was installed on the 1 GB ITM, which should have much faster access than the SATA HD, or an SDHC (or USB ready boost)
