Tested with Linux Mint 12 (Lisa). Resuming from suspend sometimes doesn't resume properly and a hard reboot is required. Happens very seldom.
Laptop feels somewhat underpowered and disk I/O causes considerable performance degradation. Sound is as can be expected from onboard laptop sound: nearby circuitry can clearly be heard interfering with the sound output and there's an audible hiss (tested on headphone-out). Battery life is very disappointing, and for frequent air travelers the weight may also be an issue.
On the positive side, all components (except the ones I didn't test) seem to be supported out of the box, making for trouble-free installation and use of the laptop.
