I own a System 76 laptop. It runs Haiku very well, but I have had nothing
but trouble with it. I have had it for less than a year and have already had
2 catastrophic hardware failures. A complete and unrecoverable hard drive
failure, and low ram corruption. I love the idea of a Micro$oft free
computer, but my System 76 is just no good. I no longer use that computer, I
have switched to an MSI Wind netbook, it came with windows, but who cares,
its easy to remove, and it was less than half the price of my other laptops.
