Well, i got the (lenovo|ibm) Thinkpad z60m last week, had some time to
play with it, finished transferring my data from the Toshiba Tecra A2
to it and tweaking it a bit. for those who care, it's the 253044M
model, with the titanium cover.

Actually, it's an if_iwi - works out of the box, no problems thus far.

Yup, cannot resume (well, CAN but cannot use the laptop
afterwards :-D ) if suspending FROM the virtual console used by X if I
have DRI enabled. I removed the DRI option from xorg.conf and:
- I can resume with no other problem than some desktop
background corruption (XFCE220.127.116.11) , which is fixed by issuing a
- radeon.ko and drm.ko are NOT loaded ( I still need to understand the
difference between drm and dri...)
- graphics perfomance has dropped (As expected), from about 750+ in
glxgears to 220 approx.
If I really need DRI, the alternative would be to switch to text
console before suspending - i'm pretty sure it works fine in this case.
Also, in the Toshiba, I had to set this knob :
to 1. This makes bad things happen on the z60m, so it's back to 0.
Powerd seems to be working fine too.

thanks for this, i;ll give it a try soon.

yup, all fine there.
Also, I had to remove
from my kernel config - else resume would fail in every single case
(text mode so I would assume DRI has nothing to do).
About to try to OSS sound drivers.
- The fingerprint scanner is detected but i doubt it'll be useful (definitely not enabling the bios option to rely on the info stored in this little device for booting up :) )
- Bluetooth comes up as ugen0, and it gets switched on/off with Fn-F5, whilst both wifi and b-tooth are affected by the physical switch at the front of the laptop.
IRDA is detected but i havent played with it yet.
Battery life : i havent had much chance to test it yet, but it seems to hover around the 4 1/2 hours at 95%... not sure how it'll perform under normal use yet.
If anyone wants any other info, just ask away :)
thanks for all your suggestions / comments
