    Comments: This laptop works perfectly well with Fedora. (I have upgraded the RAM to 1.25 gigs though. The original 256 was just not enough. 512mb and over is a must). Just installed FC6 and everything works, the new window effects work very well. No problems so far.
    Suspend almost works, it resumes but then the screen goes blank after a few seconds. I am currnetly looking for a fix

    Comments: Desktop effects working great (compiz, not tried beryl yet). CPU frequency scaling broken despite installing i686 kernel. Upgraded system from FC5 to FC6 via DVD. Tried experimental 'intel' video driver but I got display flicker due to low refresh rate (60Hz).

    Comments: Runs compiz / Desktop effect out of the box. for Wireless you only need to yum install ipw2200 firmware from atrpms. First kernel required acpi=off ide=nodma, 2.6.18-1.2849.fc6 does not.
    runs i686 kernel

    Comments: Fresh install used "radeon" x11 driver and AIGLX and Compiz worked as advertised. It was actually rather cute. But other 3D/OpenGL apps didn't want to work like the xscreensaver stuff. Switched to ATI driver and all works well. Hibernate works better under ATI driver. Some connected USB devices cause hibernate and shutdown to be flaky. (Seems the OS doesn't know how to shut them down or something, removing them prior to shut down works fine though.)

    Comments: wireless works with ndiswrapper beautifully. couldn't make it with native braodcom driver which comes with FC6. Still have some issues with figuring out the right driver for graphic card. wasn't able to enable Hardware acceleration. Also suspend doesn't work under fc5/fc6. at least i couldn't figure it out. Everything else works fine including FC6 desktop effects.

    Requires firmware from: Clicky to enable wireless networking also installing wpa_supplicant is recommended.

    Comments acpi does not seam to work get a no device at boot this did work fine with FC5. Getting the broadcom working was a little tricky but was able to get it up using native bcm43xx support for Broadcom BCM4318. No desktop effects in FC6 think that is because of only having 256MB of ram. Also using a USB mouse with no problems at all.

    Comments: GFX works well with nvidia's drivers. Suspend gets stuck on "black screen". Touchpad has very annoying issue with unwanted mouse-clicks, but can be disabled with xorg change. WiFi with ipw2200 drivers is very erratic- worked better in fc5. Other than that everything works perfectly!

    Comments: So far everything has worked great. Still no effects, but that's because the 'radeon' drivers don't work with the X1400 and 'fglrx' doesn't have AIXGL support yet. Suspend to disk can be touchy (try to suspend and just put me right back to the desktop), but usually it works just fine.

    Comments:

    WIFI: This model laptop has no expansion slots which is a shame since the wireless card doesn't work well. I have not been able to get any native Linux drivers to work with the system. NDISWRAPPER works but the card is only able to establish a connection with a secure network. This is a known problem with this card.

    SOUND: The sound system works but has a number of problems, the worst being that the sound is very quiet compared to what it would be in windows. The built in speakers are Altec Lansing and the sound card is: Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 01). After resuming from hibernation or suspend the sound system doesn't restore. I've created a fix for it which I've posted here: http://www.securemind.org/v4/?p=8 .

    I've created a Linux-Laptop.org page here: http://www.securemind.org/Linux_For_...LinforLap.html

    This was a BestBuy Special that I picked up a week ago for 399$ so for what does work, it was well worth it.

    Comments: running custom built kernel from cvs at oss.sgi.com, config as close to fedora as possible.
    Problems:
    1. gnome-power-manager does not work with "Ask me" mode for power button,
    goes to shutdown instead
    2. suspend, hibernate, lid open/closure do not work correctly.
    3. until now didn't setup bioapi to do authentication, sample application works correctly.
    4. didn't try ATI proprietary drivers yet.
