Summary

All hardware devices run perfect without special settings. Thinkpad's key “Fn” (a special function key) is also supported. Only unsupported thing is the “ThinkVantage” key (other Thinpad's special key), but you can set it by configuring the appropriate file.

The desktop environment (GNOME) is well-integrated with this laptop. You can control sound volume, brightness, etc. by your keys.

Finally, this laptop just works under (Ubuntu) GNU/Linux.
