HP nc6320 (google RH383ET) - most things work, including wifi and 
ethernet, except for the following:

- gives a repeated message like acpi_tz0 absurd value ignoring
- dmesg shows dvd drive errors on each boot and later hald-addon-storage 
  will start using 100%cpu till it is killed (I think they are connected 
but haven't really investigated)
- with FreeBSD (latest PCBSD) cpu fan comes on more than it did with 
windows and battery doesn't last as long
- haven't tested suspend/resume or internal modem.
- don't think the finger print reader or the card reader are recognised.
- build quality is probably not as good as the IBM's

Sorry not to give exact messages, I'm at a different machine but I can 
give you dmesg etc later if required.


PS don't buy from unless you want to get spammed 
from them and various associated online shops.
