Anyone who has been following the articles on Phoronix will probably know about this already, but I thought I'd mention it just in case. Flash Player 11.2 Beta can be downloaded from Adobe Labs at
    My feeling is that flash performs scaling on the CPU rather than the GPU, on both fglrx and radeon. This positively kills performance, even though the CPU itself can decode 720p just fine (as evidenced by VLC and Totem). Threaded decoding will also help a lot, but not if the scaling is left on the CPU.

      Well it's good to see that at least you get decent battery life. I'll probably wait for Intel Cedar Trail netbooks to hit the stores though (not much confidence in ATI, sorry to say).
      I've got the Lenovo Ideapad S205 (basicly same hardware als the X120e) and suspend/resume works with Catalyst.

        Not really needed here.
