Notes

Most works out of the box.
Fn+volume controls always work (with OSD), Fn+WiFi never works, touchpad can't be switched off (not with Fn+F9, not with dedicated key).
Fn+suspend to RAM and brightness work as booted, but after a suspend they stop working and another susp to RAM will block the system completely.

Summary

Overall very good compatibility, suspend is a problem as of 20121223, maybe due to using BETA of Fedora 18.
