works pretty much out of the box. haven't really tried things like hibernate or audio recording. Wireless is stable. audio output is good. never got the projector (VGA) output working. xd/sm/sd never worked, but to be fair I didn't try too hard. The battery life is good, was able to control cpu speed as well as monitor brightness. (2010-03-06 12:35:29)
