I have the SSD version and everything except the webcam and suspend/
resume works out of the box.  With WiFi and camera turned off, I can
get over 3 hrs on the std battery doing things like locally reading
mail.  I have a USB 3G dongle and it's quite power-hungry (1/4 to 1/3
of total power consumption).
