acer-s3

I just receive an Acer S3 for work, it's going to be my main machine for a long while, I'm typing this post it.

It's amazing how easy is to setup Linux in these things these days, yes I use Arch Linux and the setup is far from easy, but the hardware specific setup I had to do to have all the hardware supported was absolutely zero. And it's not that Arch does anything to provide improved hardware support, it's just that the Linux kernel provides so much hardware support these days that I have been experiencing true plug and play for a while now.

It does weird things for me as it now supports many power management features that can become quite annoying for me as I don't relly like auto-magic so I have been disabling most of them.

It only has two USB ports which is quite annoying, yet simple to solve with a HUB.
