This laptop is operating under Kernel version 2.6.11-12mdk (see above). If operated with 2.6.11-6mdk, cpu frequency was only 800 MHz even in stationary use (w/o battery).
External USB mouse and keyboard worked without problems.
Display makes nice impression.
Without anything to do the laptop produces a moderate level of noise. Nice: with full workload the noise increases only by a small amount and stays on a constant level.
Numerical performance is a bit (about 10 percent) lower than a modern Pentium-M of equal clock rate, probably due to the smaller cache. However it is enough for most people.
See parallel report on Suse installation with Suse 9.2.
