The Edge 11" exists both in a Intel and AMD processor model.
ThinkPad Edge 11" (Intel)
Debian testing 
- Kernel driver r8169 is very instable (at least in Kernel 2.6.36), use r8168 from Realtek website instead.
Linuxmint Testing 
- Works out of the box with LinuxMint Kaya 32bit (which is based on Ubuntu 11.04, without annoying Unity desktop but a nicer Gnome)
- no proprietary drivers needed for graphics or wlan
- Very fast boot and shutdown, after suspend and resume wlan needs to be reconnected by clicking the network icon
- Touchpad seldomly hangs for 2 seconds (has been reported to kernel team), seems not to affect external mouse
- You hear the fan in a quiet room, so I reduced it by one step using thinkfan daemon with the following values in /etc/thinkfan.conf : (0, 0, 65) (1, 61, 70) (2, 66, 75) (3, 72, 80) (7, 77, 32767)
