(A) For 3D accceleration, sax2 didn't handle that directly, you have to edit xorg.conf to activate it. Same goes for dual screen (xinerama mode).
(*) Special function keys work after patched the kernel.

Remark

(2) Works with the Open Source driver but works much better with SDB:ATI_drivers
(6) Needs third party driver ("rtl8192se-kmp-desktop", "rtl8192se-kmp-default", "rtl8192se-kmp-pae", "rtl8192se-kmp-xen" which can be found in driver:wireless repo. If you don't know which to choose, open a Terminal and type "uname -r". If it prints "2.6.37.6-0.5-desktop" you have to choose "rtl8192se-kmp-desktop". If it prints "2.6.37.6-0.5-pae" you have to choose "rtl8192se-kmp-pae", etc.
Note: In Kernel 3.0 (desktop, not in default) a wireless driver is integrated but it still has many bugs. (See: [4])
(8) Not available on every Eee PC 1201T. Some vendors remove the Bluetooth chip.

Remark

(9) The 1025CE is very new on october 20th 2012. Function keys did not work directly. I changed grub2 config and added these two parameters: "acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor". It made Fn+F5 and Fn+F6 change screen brightness.
(8,*) Bluetooth and the camera worked at first install.

Remark

(A) Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML Express Graphics Controller. Works out of the box, s-video out does not feed the television the correct screen resolution. Expected correct behavior would be to scale down the screen and LCD resolution together, which should be simple enough an xorg.conf tweak.
(10) Manually calling this works: /usr/sbin/s2ram -f -a 1.
(C) Suspend and resume works, but bluetooth stops working after resume.
