I have trouble installing Opensuse (os won't even load), but Ubuntu works very very well. The only problem I see is the switchable graphic and the keyboard shortcut unable to work.
Either Linux require you to manually shut down graphic auto-detect in bios and run either discreet or onboard exclusively. I believe an update will be here soon. At least it work better than XP 64bit or any of the Vista for me.

I tried Gentoo and Backtrack 3, it works but both network cards (gig and wifi) aren't working, so it's kinda hard doing something.
