I have a T60p that I bought a few weeks ago. My only hassle so far is
getting the wireless NIC to do any sort of encryption. I can only get
it to associate with my WAP if I turn off all encryption (I can't even
get WEP to work).. I'm about to post a beer offer if someone might be
willing to make a house call for me...
Otherwise it seems to work great. Oh, well, one other issue is that I
haven't been able to successfully suspend or hibernate it, either.
Going into Hibernate works, but coming out of it locks up.. But I've
seen some info about that; I just haven't had time to troubleshoot it much.
I can make the keyboard light come on, though! whee! And its onboard
FireGL chipset is supported at least by the proprietary ATI drivers, and
its acceleration makes my head spin.
