Using the integrated Intel graphics: video, sound, ethernet, wireless and webcam worked out of the box for me with Ubuntu 10.04. Suspend and all magic FN keys (display brightness, volume etc.) also work fine. Compiz effects are quick and look good. The user who mentions fglrx and DRM above was using a version of this laptop with the ATI graphics, I suspect.
