Notes

Installed Fedora 16 on this laptopp. All hardware was recognized straight away.

Summary

Works almost perfect. Only issues I could not solve so far:
a.) the notebook does not come back after suspend to disk.
b.) sometimes its takes up to 2 minutes until all WLAN accespoints are recognized.
Both points mentioned above might be a Fedora 16 issue (which was just released two days before I installed) rather than related to the notebook.
