Slackware and t410 with i7

I've finally upgraded my T22 to something a little more modern and somewhat faster.I'm extremely hesitant to install linux on this T410 as I have no knowledge of linux performance or compatibility with the i7-620m cpu.There are no linux drivers/downloads for this laptop on the Lenovo sight either.Does that mean what may be obvious to some but that I just can not accept...that this laptop is better served with Windows7?I will not use any linux distro but Slackware.

Anyone have any experience?

If you already own it, go for it
Here's a link about Linux experiences and that Laptop
Thinkwiki is a good source for Thinkpads

The Nvidia graphics might have some minor issues.

If it does not work to your satisfaction, I'll trade you my Dell Latitude D830 (100% working out of the box) even-steven

Thanks for the offer,that's a nice laptop you have but I'm kind of partial to this little T410 now.
