In August I got a very nice HP 2510p notebook which is now my main system for development. This took a while for two reasons.
First of all the system did not resume 100% reliably. This has now been solved, although the final patches needed for that will only be in 2.6.29, but that's no problem as I run upstream kernels anyway (I do quite a bit of kernel testing). Kudos have to go to Rafael J. Wysocki who has been doing a huge amount of work to improve the suspend/resume code in the kernel.
