good news for the Debian Community , I've got the hardware and I've tested
fedora, openSuSe and Debian. Debian was the only one to work out of
the box (using the non-free-firmware iso) wifi, every thing just
worked :) allowing me to upgrade the gfx drivers to the ATI ones

going to upgrade to testing to see if the gnome virtual keyboard is
better on that as on stable it is quite poor, but was the only
redeeming feature of Fedora 19

Will update the wiki when I've played a little more
