I'm using ubuntu 8.10 and almost everything seems to work fine, but I noticed some strange behaviour. For example:
*)fans work in strange way: until cpu temp is under 80 °C they don't work; once they begin to work, they don't stop, even if cpu temp is 20 °C.
*)function keys to adjust LCD brightness don't work unless I suspend my system. After I recover the system from suspend mode they work properly.
*)Other function keys don't work at all
*)I thing intel 4500MHD video device is not working as it should, by the moment that when I use my external LCD, fonts begin to appear like strange lines and symbols. I've noticed that in xorg.conf no driver is specified in section device.
*)Other important features as suspend, hyberante and cpu frequency scaling seem to work fine
For all this issues i decided to recompile the kernel
