Tested with Debian 6, kernel 2.6.32-5-686-bigmem with support for NVidia (NVidia driverversion 195.36.31). Standby an sleep functions does not work however, every time one af them is tried, Linux locks up. I tried with a full install of Ubuntu 11.04 without luck. If I should find a solution I will post it.
I also testet the Ubuntu 10.04 live-cd, which worked as well. All in all this laptop goes well with Linux besides the standby/sleep problem, it's very responsive. Graphics tested with 900p blu-ray rip, which works very well.
