I can't share anything about this particular notebook, but the hardware seems 
essentially very similar (possibly even basically identical) to the HP dv1000 
series notebook, a multimedia-oriented laptop, minus the screen size and form 
factor. All the hardware works pretty well under Linux with open-source 
drivers, so you should have no trouble there.

The only thing I could possibly foresee you having trouble with is _maybe_ the 
i900. There has been support for it in Xorg and DRM (via the i915 module), 
but I have no experience with anything newer than an i855. It should work at 
least in 2D, though. In any event, it won't be terribly fast ;-)

Hope that helps.
