First impressions: - created a USB bootable image, since this laptop doesn't have a CD/DVD anymore. Worked great, except you need to add intel_idle.max_cstate=0 to the boot (and later add it for grub/lilo booting) Later kernels (2.6.36 and up) should have this fixed. - everything worked, sound, video (tried skype and cheese), flash, wireless and wired internet. Only thing not working yet is screen brightness. - battery usage loooks pretty decent, should be getting almost 7hr out of this. - interest QuickStart button that gives you internet in a 2 seconds boot (from cold boot though). The desktop looks very linux/ubuntu like. Impressive. Warning though: this account doesn't have a password, and once you have started apps and used a password, be sure to not have them remember those, as they are stored somewhere in silicon inside the machine. Also notable is that starting the apps takes a lot longer than in native linux.
