What about Kirabook with linux


Hey, guys. I found a wonderful laptop recently called Toshiba Kirabook, with 2560x1440 high resolution. Anybody know this new device? How about linux on it?
I found it got a intel wireless card so the drive won't be a problem I hope.

Sorry:
Don't understand exactly what you want to know?
Did you buy the PC or borrowed or steal it? => Try whatever Linux program you want.
Are you going to buy it? => Ask the vendor for its RAM and HDD capacity.
Do you know its RAM and Hard Disk capabilities? => Find a Linux version accordingly.

There are Linux versions for all tastes.

U mean abs I can have a Linux on it? I'm afraid the Toshiba Kirabook aint open enough. I'm asking if there is someone using this laptop and I need some one who are willing to share his experience.
Then I can decide whether to buy it.

This is why I did not reply to this thread earlier!
That is a very high powered and expensive machine, so I understand that you're wary of it. The only way you're probably going to know is if you try! Use a recent kernel and you should be fine. (so *buntu rather than Debian)
On the other hand, do you really need a machine that powerful?
