Core 2 Duo, dockable, ethernet, wifi, onboard Intel sound, ATI onboard M66 video (which is
definitely "getting there" since AMD opened up the GPU specifications), fingerprint reader,
bluetooth: all working. The only issue is the modem, which I haven't even tried to use, but
which I think that I saw some Suse drivers for somewhere.
When docked, the serial and parallel kernel modules all "magically" load, the ethernet port
transparently hands over from the laptop to the docking station, and the docking station's
memory card reader is a USB mass-storage device and "just works" anyway.
So why say "More Thinkpad, less Dell Hell" when you could just buy a Thinkpad?
