It seems that I can't even get that far. I get the "Loading Operating System...... Disk error, Press Any key to restart". I get this message when trying to boot from the hard disc, and also from the iBoot cd. Strange.

You may get faster replies if you can list out the specs of your proposed system as opposed to having links to view them. By the time one clicks on the links to read the details, going back to your questions to post a replay may not be of paramount importance. Just a suggestion. Good luck.
I'm in the same predicament without being able to boot from hard disk and no sleep working function. Until the sleep is resolved, I just disabled my "Energy Saver" in System Preferences (set to "Never") to avoid the system freezes from inactivity.
