ATI Radeon 51xx works better with fglrx. Its current open-source drivers' powersaving is very bad (with fglrx can last 2,5 hours with no problems, with ordinary drivers it's no more than an hour), and 3d performance is poor.
Plus the AR9285 wlan adapter sucks (not support, but itself).
There are boot problems if linux is installed on an external usb hard drive. (2011-08-18T03:57:25+00:00)
