I used the wifi source code driver from RealTek:

It worked pretty well so far (Open, WEP, WPA2 AES PSK) :)

The bluetooth seems to work well with Gnome, I browsed my nokia and DL files…

Great lappy, it just lacks HD and power LEDs.

I still have to fix my xorg config (AMD model) 'cause the pixels ratio isn't 1 to 1…
