    Anyone attempt to install Lion on one of the new ASUS(UX31, UX21), Acer(ASPIRE S3), or Lenovo 300s?

    Or do you think it will even be possible?

    It will certainly be possible. But...

    I am waiting for specific specs on:
    Ether
    wifi
    audio

    those are the only bits of hardware that have the potential to cause challenges.

    I've got an ASUS UX31e and I tried to boot unibeast. The setup loads, but it stucks at the bluetooth mouse & keyboard recognition. I tried to plug an external mouse/keyboard, but nothing happens! Any ideas how to enable this devices?

    No I don't have those devices, but the installer asks me for them. I cannot use the trackpad or an external usb mouse. I tried to install the PS/2 mouse kexts on my bootable usb drive with multibeast, but then it doesn't boot at all.

    usb keyboard and mouse, usually the bluetooth assistant only comes up if it doesn't see any other input devices (ps2 doesn't work natively) on the plus side it would appear your bluetooth is recognised :D
