I also have a very good experience with Ubuntu and a Acer Travelmate.
Toshiba is the only vendor that had this problem until now(from my
experience I worked with Dell, Acer and Toshiba).
The most intreresting thing is that my thread where I disscussed about
the heating problem had dissepeared from the Toshiba forum. :))
I guess someoane really didn't liked that I figured out that my Toshiba
Sattelite L30 PSL33E doesn't support other OS that Vista(not even XP).
My other posts are still there, just the heating problem disseppeared. :))
