Notes

Tested in Ubuntu 10.04.
WiFi didn't work out of the box, but installation took a couple of minutes after Jockey recognized it and installed the correct drivers/firmware.
Bluetooth worked in the live-cd, broken after wifi install. Known issue.
Brightness working with some caveats. The hotkeys not working, meanwhile working around with brightness applet from gnome.
The rest of the hotkeys worked fine.
Touchpad working without vert scroll nor multitouch
UPDATE: Internal mic was completely mute. It seems to be a known issue with intel hda chipset.
Based on bug #480815:
Add following
options snd_hda_intel model=laptop
options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 enable=yes
to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
working again, tested in skype

Summary

I'm fairly happy with the actual support, except for minors problems/workaround.
