Notes

The Ralink 5390 wireless driver is rumored to be included in the 2.6.39 Linux kernel

Summary

This looks like a very interesting system. Unfortunately, at this time it is a bit too early for Linux use. There are two significant problems - there is no Linux driver for the wireless network adapter in general distribution at this time, and it has a Synaptic “ClickPad” Touchpad with “buttons” integrated in the touch surface. The latest Synaptic driver (1.3.0 and later) should handle the touchpad correctly, but in my initial tests I found that it works ok with openSuSE 11.4, but the right button does not work with Ubuntu 11.04 or Fedora 15 Beta.
