 +===== Notes =====
 +==== Graphics ====
 +You will need to use the proprietary nvidia module for the graphics to work. See the guide section here for details.
 +==== Sound ====
 +Have to modify "/​etc/​modprobe.conf"​ and add "​module=lenovo"​ to the end of this line "​options snd-hda-intel index=0"​. The Build-in mic also works.
 +==== Wireless ====
 +It can scan but never connect because a bug in madwifi
 +==== Camera ====
 +Works with the driver from [[http://​​]].
 +===== Summary =====
 +It's smallest AMD dual-core with standalone graphic card laptop. ​ Due its well-designed model, it's quite easy to upgrade the hard disk or the memory, even the processor! ​ But it's not a good choice for the guys wanna using wireless. It seems that this bug of madwifi will not be fix until Olympic 2008 end...
