|Screen||Yes||Only on 800×600. Can be set to 1024×600 Details are lower|
|Graphics||Yes||Only 2D and some hardware acceleration.|
|Wireless||Yes||Out of the box|
|Card Reader||Not Tested|

First of all brightness controls don`t work. You can adjust brightness in ubuntu with this command: sudo setpci -s “00:02.0” F4.B=CC (replace CC with a value from 00 to FF).
You can get a resolution of 1024×600 by using a kernel patch which is found here: http://blog.uninstall.it/tag/gma3600/
BEWARE: if you use the kernel patch you will have resuming from suspend problems. Screen gets jumbled colors. Other than that problem it seems to work ok.
I was able to run BRRip movies without any problems. 3D acceleration doesn`t work yet though.
Battery life is ok 6-8 hours.
Headphones jack works out of the box.
I would rate it with 8/10 for linux functionality.
