    So after I build the DSDT, the frequency and voltage scaling should work just fine?

    Wanted to add my two pence on using the Edge with Win7. Same AMD version (Neo X2 L625 / 4G DDR2 )
    The Windows Experience Index scores are
    Proc 4.2
    Mem 5.6
    Aero 3.2
    3D 4.2
    HD 5.7

    I'm mainly using this with Office 2007 and Firefox. There is no disernable lag switching between multiple apps. Only used on the battery once, which lasted about 4-5 hrs. One niggle I'm having is the spacebar requires a bit more force than I'm used to. Hopefully this will improve when its worn in. Despite this the keyboard is very good, nicely spaced keys and good response.
    Also there is a bit of interference with the audio using headphones.
    Overall I'm happy with the performance and the price tag(470).

    Yes, after you build the kernel with the DSDT, frequency and voltage scaling should work fine. You will have modprobe powernow-k8, and use cpufrequtils. You can check your frequency with cpufreq-info or cat /proc/cpuinfo.

    I can report success merging pnutzh4x0r's changes into the DSDT extracted on my machine and building them into the Ubuntu lucid (2.6.32-12.17 kernel). Thank you pnutzh4x0r!

    It may have been possible to just use pnutzh4x0r's changes directly but it looked like his machine may have had a different amount of system memory so I left those delta's out of my build.

    I'll attach attach an archive of the commits I made to the ubuntu tree in case anyone finds them useful. It took a couple tries and I also enabled some ACPI debug dumps that are not needed. (remove commit 002 if you don't want them)

    How does the battery feel with the laptop resting in your lap? I normally use a a laptop sitting in a chair & ottoman, so the 6 cell battery would rest just above my knees. I'd be OK with the 4 cell version but it doesn't include bluetooth.

    I like the design of the HP pavilion dm3* which is flat on the bottom (also 13", no optical drive) but I'm worried about HP reliability.

    Hmm... I usually use my laptop on a desk or table. For the last 30 min or so, I've been using it on my lap on the couch to see how it is... and well, it's kind of awkward. I think one could get used to it, but you can definitely tell. It doesn't get warm, if that is your worry, but since the battery sticks out at the bottom it feels a little strange. Not too annoying though.

    Did you upgrade the BIOS?

    I don't know, as I don't use KDE. However, I can saw that the thinkpad_acpi module does not work yet; I get the following message:

    Code:
    thinkpad_acpi: Not yet supported ThinkPad detected!
    So I'm guessing lapsus would not run with all of its features.
