Bluetooth works fine - out of the box:-)

Bill Giannikos, 2010/09/22 15:40

Thanks, page has been updated.

Jesper Banck, 2010/08/30 11:45

I have a computer just as the one described and it is not recommended to run linux, the cpu-fan spins at its highest all the time

Hans Kristian Munkejord, 2011/07/14 10:30

Strange. I run Mint XFCE and my cpu-fan is very low.
