a couple of weeks ago I asked for the experience with the Thinkpad T520.
In between I ordered one:
(Dual) Core i7, integrated Intel Graphics, 1600x900 resolution, 500G HD
It runs on openSUSE 12.1 (see below), any my experience is very good so far:
s2disk & s2ram works out of the box, 3D graphics working (also after s2ram), 
Performance is for requirements more than enough.

Presentation on external screen works well, although I had an issue then the 
LCD switched off while the external screen was attached. That froze the 
whole machine, but I was not able to reproduce so far.

So in total: good choice!

Have a great day,


ThinkPad T520
OS: openSUSE 12.1 (x86_64)
Kernel: 3.1.10-1.9-desktop
KDE: 4.8.2 (4.8.2) "release 491"
