Well it's sort of like the little cousin the 3 series 300U1A it has a core i3 @ 1.3 ghz and no turbo boost, but letting you know two things samsung bites at dsdt writing and whatever they do for brightness is a pain when I unplug the laptop the brightness goes down but in windows I can get it all the way back up in macosx it changes to 100% therefore I can't get the brightness back up unless I plug it in. Also this thing uses the combo s4 s5 like the mac book air, but it's kinda tricky because it needs to be fixed to work in mac-osx and the standard fix does not work or is not sufficient.
I could use some help with those.
Anyway yes the 7 series would be cool but it's more money then I have to spend. I eventually want to turn this one into a tablet but I can't find a capacitive touchscreen in 11.6 inch size with a decent controller yet. I dun understand they should be making them whole sale since both samsung and others use them but I can't find the source they use. (when I do trust you me I will be making this thing a tablet, but it's gotta wait till A. Capacitive touchscreen B. everything including the ALC 269 audio works (without Voodoo HDA, voodoo battery etc. cause those are probably causing kernel panics I'm experiencing on boot.
But yes that is a cool tablet, just the catch is gonna be a lot of work and on the 3 series while it will boot gpt, it will only do it after it has invoked the bios screen and you have to select in the very last screen force boot the ssd/hd.
and my bios has a usb hot boot issue you have to cold boot to detect usb devices.
So these might be issues this thing also will have, my solution was install lion on got CCC it reformat with a win7 startup repair disk, then cold boot lion from a usb flash and then only then ccc it back over to MBR and then reinstall the bootloader, now it boots without annoying bios screen.
