#1 reason I like Mac OS X - the hardware is guaranteed to work with  
the OS.

My Medion laptop is reasonably well supported by Ubuntu, I have yet to  
figure out how to get suspend to RAM or disk to work consistently  
(suspend works the first time, but never again). At present I have  
Ubuntu set up to shutdown when the power button is pressed or the lid  
is closed.

WiFi (802.11n, no less) works just fine out of the box. Plug-and-Play  
networking (Zero-Conf/Mac style) works just fine.

Now to see if I can make Ubuntu boot fast enough that the lack of  
Suspend won't matter...
