"One Pop-Down RJ45 Network port" ??? Pop-down? Does that mean it isn't just a normal port you plug in, but is one of those spring loaded ports that pop out? Ya'know, the things horrible notorious for breaking?
I guess it doesn't matter. Googled the chipset, first result: "Realtek r8169 not working in CentOS" - Sounds good to me!
"Three USB 3.0 ports" - I would seriously pay MORE for more USB ports, even if they are 2.0 ports. I hate having to travel with a USB hub just because manufactures don't want to shove out more than 3 ports these days. At least desktops are better in that they generally ship with 10+ now right on the back of the motherboard, before adding the USB headers for front devices.
"802.11n WiFi (ath9k)" - Doesn't say if it is 2.4GHz only or 5GHz compatible, or if it is multi-channel or not.
So, it is a cool concept, I guess, but I think things need to be tweeked a tad to be more universally usable.

top Ask Slashdot: High-Performance Laptop That Doesn't Overheat?
Why does testing NEED to happen on the same system? Why do you need all these high end laptops just to code? How much of your budget are you sinking into this?
For my development studio, we have one single centralized VMWare server that is beefy as fuck for all of our application and database testing. We simply either remote desktop or samba/nfs share into each of our environments that we need to work in.
This keeps things clean and centralized for all of us, allows us to work from ANY machine (such as the 1.6GHz Celeron I'm using to post this right now), and not have to worry a single bit about performance on an individual machine basis. Whenever we need more resources, we simply upgrade the centralized server environment and everyone benefits, without the need to reconfigure each end users machine, or outright replace them (because who the hell has the ability to upgrade laptops these days?)

This depends on the company you work for.
I've worked in some where something as simple as a typo in spelling or grammar is classification for submitting a bug report to developers.
User Interface and User Experience should definitely be classified as bugs.

top Federal Court Nixes Weeks of Warrantless Video Surveillance
Interesting on this point.
One of the clients that I manage, the cops came to their house. They asked the resident to allow the cops to setup security video cameras in my client's back yard. The client's back yard faced the back yard on the next street over of a suspect of a crime (not sure if drugs or something else). The cops came in and installed all their own video equipment to point at this other house to monitor them 24/7, from my client's property, NOT from a public location.
So, this is like your scenario of someone turning over security footage from their own cameras, only taking it one step further because the cops installed security cameras on private property (with permission of course... but what did they DO get get that permission, I don't know)
