Works great with OpenSUSE 11, didn't test with anything else, but, works well.


all suspend to ram and sleep functions work, only downside is that the display brightness
cannot be dimmed. Presently working on it, everything else works like a charm.

Installed openSUSE 13.1 and works perfectly; still no brightness control though. System runs a little warm as both cpu cores run at 10% minimum all the time with nothing running.

Kali Linux runs well for purposes needed. built in wifi wont work for capture had to use a ralink card.
