I see some lockups from time to time that I can't even get into DDB, but
its very rare. Forget about suspend/resume - it doesn't work on any SMP
machine. There were some patches posted on freebsd-acpi@ for
suspend/resume SMP support, but they didn't work for me. I see no
problems with shutdown (if I don't use mentioned patches). Other than
that it works quite ok. Unfortunately because of nvidia driver
limitation I can't run amd64 or PAE.

I haven't tried DVD too much, but it's the same reader I had in T43 I
