I looked at it some years ago but it simply was not really worth the 
effort. There are "barebone" notebooks too (or used to be at least) but 
I would rather make sure I get a good one. And take my word for it, 
before I replace this one RESEARCH is the word. Would love to buy 
System76 but too expensive to get to where I live.
