I have an ACER aspire one which I have taken to both install fests and
regular meetings and have never had problems connecting to both MIT and
JABRS BLU install fest ESSID.  I have removed Microsoft Windows 7
Starter because of limited capabilities. I have Ubuntu 13.04 not Ubuntu
13.10 installed because I need IM Pinyin.  I also have Fedora 20
installed but I cannot install multiple GUI desktops such as KDE, MATE
etc. The future of this
machine is to be backed up and Ubuntu 14.05 and above installed as well
as having the back cover screws replaced (from MicroCenter?)
