why is this such a big deal? a company offers a 2 and a half year old laptop with the linux os, while every other OEM has moved on to newer laptops with haswell cpus and the geforce 700 series (clevo w230st). why is this making the front page?

Edit: not to mention that linux support of optimus is flaky at best.
