Runs great on Ubuntu 10.04. After initial system install you'll to install additional drivers for WiFi and GPU.

everything runs great (webcam, bluetooth etc…). the only glitch is that the button for turning off/on touch-pad will turn it off, but will is unable to turn it back on by pressing it again.
