I run Ubuntu 6.06LTS on my Averatec 3225HS. You have to set a couple of kernel arguments to get all the functionality (specifically, you have to set the framebuffer resolution and disable ACPI), but other than that it runs like a charm. It's one of my best Linux experiences to date, mostly from the sheer comfort and "just works"ness of it.
No announcement yet.
Which distro do you run on your laptop?
