I just bought one of these and have been playing with Ubuntu Hardy Alpha 6 on it. Thus far:

Things that work:

* Graphics (including 3d and Xv). The chipset appears to be very similar to that of the X61
* trackpad and trackpoint, including scrolling
* Ethernet
* Wifi
* Bluetooth (and its enablement can be controlled via thinkpad_acpi)
* DVD drive
* Camera
* Hibernate (although some hardware seems confused when resuming, e.g. cpu scaling)

Things that don't work:

* Audio:
  * Latest ALSA release shows Master and PCM only in the mixer and produces no audio
  * Nightly alsa-driver snapshot from 11/March/2008 populates the mixer with more realistic entries, but is still silent on both speakers and headphones.
* Suspend - the machine appears to suspend, but right at the last minute starts up again

Things not tested yet:

* Fingerprint scanner
* USB ports (but hey, these are bound to work)
* External VGA port
* RF killswitch
