The nvidia propietary drivers don't recongnize my screen, and in some cases also no recongnise the video card. But with the nv free/libre driver works fine.
The Sound is really incredible, very high definition.
This laptop works fine with Linux, I'm using Linux Debian Squeeze/sid with XFCE desktop.
