ThinkPad T61 15.4" with Suse 10- anyone?

After reading a lot, I learnt about ThinkPad T61 15.4". Does anyone have such a laptop with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop version 10 pre-installed? I'd like to know:

1) Is that ditribution of Suse fully working on the laptop?

2) How is the screen like? (Glare and eye strain worry me, because I have to read a lot on that screen)

3) Is it a noisy laptop?

4) The power adapter, is it external? Does it get too hot? Noisy?

I ask all these because on Lenovo site I couldn't find the answers. Thank you.

I haven't got one of these, but here are some links to help.

Different distro, but a good write up.

Just be aware there are several models of the T61, as there are with other IBM or Levono ThinkPads. This is the Levono link with the distros they tested.

Hope this helps.
