I was amused by the post until yesterday... The screen of my ZaReason Strata displayed a blue vertical stripe that eventually extended from the top to the bottom into a full line.
This happened because I was moving the laptop while carrying some books and I almost dropped it. Not to let it slide to the floor, I exerted additional pressure on the lid against my leg and, surely, I damaged the screen.
The good thing is that there is a place nearby where I can take my laptop to have the screen replaced. I trust the technician, too.
It turns out that I am the first client that brings him a Linux laptop.
He fixed the Strata fast and, as I tested the KDE effects on PCLinuxOS, he was impressed by the beauty of Linux. He also praised the solid construction of the Strata. He said that other clients have cracked the screen of their laptops with less than what I did to mine.
That confirms my decision. I will keep buying from ZaReason. :)
