Running Fedora on this Lenovo Thinkpad T510W and lovin' it ...

Not only is the hardware 100% compatible with Linux, but it's an
incredibly solid laptop that has survived several drops from height,
and even a mild soaking.  Battery life is superb and it's very fast
(two cores x two threads, upgraded myself to 8GB of RAM).
