That's great James!  Yes, it's a fairly good low-cost laptop.  Note that I
believe that someone already ported cyapa to FreeBSD and made the interface
a bit more mac-like.  It's near the top the 'apply the patch' part under
'Build custom installation media'.  He ported cyapa (the touchpad driver)
and ig4 (the i2c driver for intel haswell) to FreeBSD.
