Generally, wireless is a typical issue. The Atheros cards tend to work out of the box, but the Realtek ones don't. Acer and Asus both seem to use both.
I was considering the 1201 at one point, but found, (not only in Fedora) that people were having a good deal of difficulty with the wireless drivers at one point.
It looks like it might have the Atheros card, so you might be fine with it.
I prefer Asus, but from what I understand, the Acers have substantially improved since I last had one.
