hiya mike thanks for the comprehensive insights.

still investigating the aorus forums, there does exist a thread where
people are attempting to install various flavours of linux, and are
struggling quite a lot, basically.  one person is running lubuntu in a
VM under windows and the machine is hanging (not the same hardware as
i want to get: older and the 15in version), another person is
compiling the nvidia drivers and they're getting kernel panics
(indicative of hardware memory errors).

however, there is another person here
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/showthread.php?p=5388556 who
seems to have got slackware dual-booted and is actually happy.

*sigh* argh i can just feel that, after thinking it through, 16GB
simply isn't going to be enough, long-term.
