Sound could be a little louder. Keyboard is spillproof, which is a nice gimmick.

Summary

A turn on- feel good Linux laptop. Came with Suse Linux, don't know if it would have worked. Installed Ubuntu 10.10 via printed CD (from ShipIt) right away.
Even the Fn Buttons like brightness control and volume+/- are working perfectly.
