Yes, mine works just fine, but it has an Intel IPW2915 wireless module and
an ATI Radeon X300. It is a model 2687 T43/p.
However, I do use a custom Linux 3.9.8 kernel, and the open X.org GPU
drivers for the Radeon X300. The ATI-radeon-based T43 are known to work
just fine with the latest 3.4 and 3.9 kernels, it has been a very long while
since I last tried any kernel from the 3.2 series.
Hmm, it _does_ complain of uknown NMIs when the kernel changes the PCIe link
width of the Radeon due to power-save policies, but that's harmless.

Make sure you update your ThinkPad to its latest BIOS and EC firmware if you
haven't done so already.
