Hi Mark,

I just got an X1 Carbon Touch (3443-CTO) last week, and I'm running 
Fedora 19 on it. Seems to work great so far, except for some of the 
gesture recognition. I expect that will catch up, but suspend/resume and 
sound work great. I haven't tried hibernate, but I rarely use that.

It's a high-powered machine, but you can only get 8GB of RAM into them 
so far.

Highly recommended.
