I have an Everex StepNote laptop that works fine with CentOS (came
with Ubuntu, but I don't like that), but I would not recommend any
Everex computers to anyone.  For one thing, the company is out of
business, so all warranties are DOA.  My laptop works fine, so far,
except that the headset plug for earphones (and, hence, extension
speakers) does not work.  I'm not in a financial position to get it
repaired, so I have a fine, multimedia capable laptop with a crappy,
mono speaker that sounds like most laptop speakers - tinny and crappy.

Aside from that,....
