I just bought one of these (model 6478-14G) 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 (although I have managed to make the AVC kernel driver oops)
* Hibernate (works properly with bios 1.02a)
* RF killswitch (turns off wifi and bluetooth devices)

Things that don't work:

* Audio:
  * Latest ALSA release shows Master and PCM only in the mixer and produces no audio
  * [2008-03-11] Nightly alsa-driver snapshot populates the mixer with more realistic entries, but is still silent on both speakers and headphones.
  * [2008-03-14] An extremely helpful ALSA developer is making the necessary changes. An early version is able to play sound and most of the card/mixer features work.
* Suspend - the machine appears to suspend, but right at the last minute starts up again
  * This turns out to be the ethernet driver failing to suspend. Removing it before suspending works fine and can be done by putting SUSPEND_MODULES="e1000" in /etc/pm/config.d/local
* Backlight control (although this is probably a recently introduced kernel bug in Hardy, which should be reverted before release)
* WiFi LED

Things not tested yet:

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

tp_smapi?

What about tp_smapi's battery control and hdaps? --Thinker 03:15, 15 March 2008 (CET) the battery control entries seem to be there, but not hdaps --cmsj 00:56, 26 March 2008 (GMT)
