Linux is tested on the m51sn. opensuse 11.1 is already running on my lappi.
processor all right, T8300. screen runs good only with the right nvidia driver!! optical drive is installt to.
graphics: nvidia gs9500m runs only with the right driver correctly. sound,hdd, ethernet, wlan, bluetooth, usb and firewire already ok.
problems are: the cardreader, express card slot, webcam and fingerprintsensor. modem was not tested.
