Lan: Broadcom BCM4401-B0 works out of the box

Laptop lid indicator: doesn’t work at all
Suspend to RAM works out of the box. WiFi and compiz seem to work well after multiple suspending and resuming. Be carefull – if you use external monitor only (laptop display is OFF), getting out of suspend without the external monitor attached will leave you with a blank screen.
Intel’s GMA950 was detected and XRandR via Gnome Screen Resoultion tool worked out of the box. Compiz works fine.
If you want to setup DualScreen with desktop across both screens, be sure
1 to fit Intel’s 2048×2048 display DRI limit
2 to put external monitor above the laptop in Screen Resolution tool. This way desktop icons and the panels are on external monitor. Otherwise, I have Gnome panels on external monitor and desktop icons on the laptop.
There’s an open-source driver which needs proprietary firmware. Installing is easy – use the Hardware Drivers tool.
The laptop lid indicator doesn’t work as in Hardy
The Flash and keybroad indicator bugs are finally gone. Though, Mozilla Thunderbird and Lightning still need hacking just like in Hardy
Seems we finally got an almost perfect distro release for this machine and alike 😀
