The FCC received so many comments that their site crashed. No surprise, really. It's probably written in Coldfusion: https://www.battleforthenet.com/

Review of my +System76 Bonobo Extreme: 7.5 out of 10

With a crystal clear 17 inch screen, 32 gig of RAM, an Intel i7 quad-core and a 1TB solid state drive, it is hard to complain. This machine really is almost exactly what I wanted: function over form, a hard-core portable server where speed and power are primary, everything else is negligible.

The small, picky things that bug be, but I can live with, are:

The space key is shifted one key to the left compared to other keyboards. I'm getting used to it.

The machine is big and boxy, although no heavier, and only slightly bulkier than my previous machine. It's more of an aesthetic but insignificant thing.

The power supply is a giant, heavy brick. The plug is an unnecessarily thick, inflexible 4 pin cable. This bugs me a little bit, since I have to carry this everywhere, and constantly ravel and unravel this power cord. It's durable and will definitely take a good beating, but I'm paying a price for that durability on a daily basis.

The mouse click buttons make loud "chunk" noises. If not clicked far down enough, you hear the "chunk", but the click won't register. I'd much rather see two separate buttons below the mouse pad, so that I can feel the edge and know when my click will register.

The speak system  has no subwoofer. It's a shame, because it's halfway decent for a laptop, but the sound is too sharp and unbalanced to enjoy. Headphones become a necessity, unfortunately.

But: Fedora 21 installed flawlessly, the glowing keyboard has perfect backlighting, and it is fast as hell. I think I can live with the rest.

I love +Adagio Teas , and wrote an anti-+Teavana  review, because of the superb quality, lower price and quick delivery Adagio offers. If you like Teavana (tea that smells like Glade air freshener, or has a pesticide after-taste), you really should consider switching to Adagio. Sadly I wasted $63 today at Teavana on their Earl Grey tea, one of the ones which don't smell like potpourri. It has a weak taste, and a pesticide after-taste. Never again.
