Also, what are the specs of the laptop and have you confirmed all the
hardware (particularly graphics card and wifi) work as expected? There's
nothing worse than a failed install because of hardware for a user
that's not familiar with that as a possibility...

In any case, given you have enough RAM, you should be able to test this
out from the LiveCD. But I'd be particularly careful about ensuring you
have a working internet connection on the LiveCD before going ahead with
the install....

Cheers, Tom
