  i'm about ready to go out this weekend and get one of these:


to run ubuntu 11.04 and beyond.  anything i should be concerned about?
first issue is that, yes, it's an nvidia video chip but after the
grief i've had with intel i915, i just want something that works and i
refuse to get religious over this.

  also, i'm not convinced that i'll see a huge benefit from the hybrid
SSD drives but i'm good with that.  i'm happy getting 2 500G, 7200 rpm
HDs, and if the SSD hybridness of them speeds things up, i'll take
that as a bonus.

  thoughts?  thanks for any feedback.
