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.
