 +===== Summary =====
 +I have no other type of memory card so I've tested the card reader with a Memory Stick and a Memory Stick Pro Duo. Only problem is that function keys (Fn+F1 and so on) don't work. Suspend worked neither. Also if you plug out the power cord the system doesn'​t realises thet it is on battery power. Maybe a further update will help. By the way the laptop is very useable.

 +UPDATE 2009-05-20
 +Card reader is working with SD cards to. Funtion keys work properly with 2.6.29 kernel. For Ubuntu you can obtain it from here: https://​​KernelMainlineBuilds. Suspend can be fixed with the following steps:
 +1. Add this line: Option ​ "​NvAGP" ​        "​1"​ to your /​etc/​X11/​xorg.conf file under Devices section.
 +2. Edit your /​etc/​default/​acpi-support file with this option: POST_VIDEO=false
 +I hope this workaround helped someone. Still have questions? Write to me: grouder (a) gmail (.) com
