 +===== Notes =====
 +Installed Fedora 16 on this laptopp. All hardware was recognized straight away. 
 +===== Summary =====
 +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. ​
