if you want to run Linux get the old one, the latest versions of YDL
runs from a flash drive, so no need to partition etc.
the new one is way quieter though, so if its to be used for playing
Blu-rays that might be something to note.
I have an old one, installed YDL, then xubuntu, however neither distro
properly got the aspect ratio for my HD TV quite right.
1366x768 seems not to be readily doable, mind you its been over a year
since I last used Linux on it. the best I was ever able to get was
1280x1024, which was either stretched of had black bands down the sides.
think Xtra vision have a deal on at the moment, however you get buy them
up north for around £249
coincidently I am heading up that way in two weeks.
if you want me to get you some price's, or pick one up, just contact me
