Installed Fedora 16 on this laptopp. All hardware was recognized straight away.
Works almost perfect. Only issues I could not solve so far: a.) the notebook does not come back after suspend to disk. b.) sometimes its takes up to 2 minutes until all WLAN accespoints are recognized. Both points mentioned above might be a Fedora 16 issue (which was just released two days before I installed) rather than related to the notebook.
