 +===== Notes =====
 +Tested with ALT Linux Ark 5.0 and Debian Squeeze (testing).
 +Average time of work without plugged power adapter - 5.5 hours with middle brightness of screen and WiFi on.
 +For touchscreen can be used both X11 evdev driver and eGalax official binary drivers. If you cant use evdev driver (for example - you cannot remove deprecated HAL and use xorg.conf.d) you should use binary driver eGalax:
 +eGalax drivers is here:
 +Drivers from eGalax includes some tools such as calibration. Installator is script and need /​etc/​X11/​xorg.conf file.
 +This file can be generated by command:
 +Xorg -configure
 +This command will make configuration file for current hardware and will show full path to  this file. This file must be moved to /​etc/​X11/​xorg.conf
 +After this operation install script for eGalax driver and tools can be runned.
 +End step - comment strings in evdev configuration file in xorg.cond.d directory that makes tablet and touchscreen work with evdev driver for normal work of touchscreen (without fast click at up-left part of screen by touching to screen).
 +Also in case of eGalax driver need to comment section "evdev tablet catchhall"​ in /​usr/​share/​X11/​xorg.conf.d/​10-evdev.conf or cursor will move to left-top corner automatically. For working touchscreen section "evdev touchscreen catchhall"​ must be active.
 +===== Summary =====
 +Very good tablet PC. But need to find good desktop environment for use this computer as tablet - for example need configuration for fast screen rotation and call screen keyboard.
 +Debian GNU/Linux is best choice for this tablet PC. Also Windows 7 Satrter (pre-installed OS) is very bad for tablet PCs - too slow and have no good tools for using in tablet mode.
