    I'm curious tho, is there any place in this laptop to install a second Hard Drive? I figure there isn't cause it's not mentioned anywhere on the specs or options when you build it.

    Also, what memory does it take, I mean, how many pins? I thought I read somewhere in these posts that it's 200 pin memory, I keep seeing 240 pin memory advertised at different places.

    Alright

    Lets talk linux. Has anyone put linux on the x6000? Are there distro's that are better for this notebook than others? Is there full driver support for linux?

    Please let me know.

    Great forum, couldn't find anyone else discussing the zd8000 and X6000 to this detail.

    I am still undecided between the 2. The extras in the zd according to the reps there
    - the option of a Media Center OS and the external TV tuner that comes along with it.
    - Some extra S/W (not sure what)
    Configged the 2 to almost identical specs except the OS, diff = $300 ($100 MIR(or the lack of it) + $200 OS). Whoppa!

    Questions.
    1. What possible uses can we put this external TV tuner to?
    2. Does it work internationally, meaning can I use it in, say Europe or Asia (NTSC/PAL?)
    3. What does the Media Center OS offer?

    May the notebook Gods smile on this forum.

    When it comes right down to it, convenience is simply the issue with the ZD8000, however if you can't find any real use for the tv tuner features, by all means go with the X6000 or ZD8000 without the MCE OS. The ideal use of the ZD8000 with MCE is for someone who lives in a small space, such as a dorm, or someone who simply enjoys watching television while doing their work, since the screen size is big enough. Right now, IMO that is who this system is designed for. If you really don't think you will use the TV features, then don't get. I've read many posts from people who haven't even taken their tuner out of the box.

    ZD8000|MCE 2005 ~ 3.2ghz HT ~ 17" WSXGA BrightView (1680x1050) ~ 1GB DDR2 PC2-4200 ~ 60GB 7200RPM HD ~ 256MB ATI X600 ~ 54G 802.11B/G WLAN & Bluetooth ~ 8x DVD+RW/-R Combo DL drive
