Haven't tested much, since the lack of Nvidia support forces me to return the laptop.
Didn't even get to the installation screen on Ubuntu 9.10, so all tests were made using 10.4.1 LTS.
Some minor bugs with 10.4:
If it wasn't for the optimus issue, this would have probably been a decent laptop.
Bottom line: If you wan't a well-functioning, smaller Laptop running Linux, look elsewhere.
