For teens, sound is the number 1 thing on a laptop. Remember that we
returned it because it did not have the hardware buttons for audio control
(just Fn-something), and no hardware volume control.

For me, Skype is extremely important as a ubiquitous communication tool
independent of the platform.

Seems that sounds is the new wireless for Linux these days, where support
is becoming spotty for certain cards that are common in laptops.
