Lenovo Thinkpad T420 Notebook PC

Today I received my new Lenovo Thinkpad T420, I will be installing Fedora 15 tomorrow and I will post everything that I find on how everything works and any recommendations. I may also be testing with other distributions (possibly Ubuntu and open SUSE). Any requests?

--Edit--

Laptop arrived and testing as much as I can.
First off it loads Fedora 15 x64 easily. Optimus Graphics do not auto switch and had trouble getting the drivers to take. Looks like nVidia...

Disk Utility (Gnome Disk Utility) (palimpsest)

Posted 04-13-2011 at 03:44 AM by spazticclown

palimpsest or Gnome Disk Utility
This utility is great, it can not only check SMART status on your local disk but connect up to a server and check status there.
File -> Connect to server...
Enter the server address and password, your remote drives will be lined up down the left side and you can view SMART status, easy.

The second benefit is the the green circle for SMART status ok, this helps my tired eyes from scanning the console print out from smartctl.
