Question Question Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 NX.RZAAA.008 Notebook & Fedora 18 64 Bit

I've just purchased a Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 NX.RZAAA.008 Notebook and had some concerns i'd like some feedback on. First of all its my understanding that this whole uefi situation will be resolved with fedora 18 is this accurate? also what is the best way to ensure that all of the hardware will be detected and functional my thoughts were creating a live usb. The system will not daul boot with winblows as i hate windows. Any thoughts advice suggestions and feedback are welcome

Since you've already purchased the notebook, create a live USB stick and give F18 a shot. If you don't want to wait for the actual release, you can use one of the nightly composes. F18 (in its pre-release state) itself has been working fine for me, but all of my hardware is ancient; none of this uefi or gpt stuff.
