you seem to have already generated quite some good press on the most
important German tech press.
dell has a community centre where customers can generated input,
try to consider such. the dell idea storm cite generated quite
some participation also people where very happy that they got
listened to so new laptop models coming out with Linux.
otherwise a tech show off of the capabilities of your product
in terms of performance benchmarks, power efficiency (powertop)
your worst defficiency currently seems that a quick top ten
google of "highpoint gpl" doesn't direct me anywhere near to
a cool site of yours. also "highpoint linux" lands on a faq
as top one that is quite terse.
hope that helps.
