The display runs perfect at 800x600 in 16 bpp. The touch-screen is (now) working stable with my SuSE 7.3 environment (XFree86 3.3.6, Kernel 2.4.10).
The suspend to disk or standby modes work good for usual work, but when it gets up, you have to reload the network-module and restart the whole network-configuration. With SuSE 7.1 I made the experience, that when you restart the X-server afterwards, it hangs up. I stopped using these modes and I did not tried out these features so far with 7.3. (So don't leave X for fun when having resumed.) When I have much free time to spend, I will work on it, because standby would be a great thing to have.
After my Upgrade to SuSE 7.3, the instalation of the modem worked fine.
The USB-hub was detected by the 2.4.10-Kernel and I have a real mouse plugged in: the (b.t.w. optical) Logitech Mouse Man Wheel for USB (and PS/2). The FastIrDA-Port was detected, but I don't use it. The PC-Card-Slot (formerly called PCMCIA) works fine, e.g. with a CF-adapter. There was a USB-CDROM coming with the LIFEBOOK, that is not yet usable for me. If anyone succeeds, I would be happy to hear from you.
The sound device produces good sound, if you plug in a big amplifier or headphones. Forget about the build-in speakers, at least if you like Trance.
The floppy-drive is of good quality and hot-pluggable. It works as a standard-floppy.
The fan is a bit noisy (compared to silence, not to other Notebooks), but it only awakes, when you do very CPU-intensive things in the summer. Now it's winter and it has been a long time since the fan was running for the last time. So don't worry about the fan. better think of a different harddisk.
