For testing, Scott, we are growing a set of each new keyboard/language
laptop that comes out of manufacturing.
The 'ultimate' test for fonts, translations, keyboard integration is to load
a build on these laptops. I have two of each new SKU and I have tried to
label one as 'WP' (write protected for final test), and one is not
write-protected to accept earlier builds.
I don't want these leaving my office (until they have a more permanent home)
since there are only 2 of each (I'm hoping they will mulitply while sitting
on the ark).
The slightly painful, but do-able test case with any MP laptop requires
setting mfg data and re-imaging, and is documented here:
