    Bring on 7.1! Word has it they’ll be fixing the APIC problems with the nvidia nforce sets, drives not being recognised etc….. I don’t know whether said fix resolves the keyboard problem (key lock and then freeze). I know a lot of people are hell-bent on getting past these issues as quite a few people have the nforce 650 and successive chipsets, so if this fixes the issues a blog post saying so wouldn’t be a bad idea.
