Optical DrivePartial FailThis drive would not 'respond' after it had spun down and the computer has to be rebooted to resolve. At other times it would spin up and never spin down again requiring a reboot - Launchpad bug report - The belief is that there is a firmware that would resolve the issue.
Recently I modified the bios configuration (F2) and used in the ide sata the compatibility mode (by default in enhanced mode). This allows to use the DVD and CD writer; but there is a catch. You have to return to the enhanced mode if you want to star on windows (dual boot); specially with vista, because of a CRC drive check, the sistem will not start on windows untill placed in enhanced mode.

Notes

Summary

I would not recommend the laptop to Linux users at this time.
