I am surprised at all the problems this reviewer had. The T410 (which I run) and the tested T420 are not all that different. For example, both machines uses the 82577LM Gigabit Network Connection LAN connection. On my T410 the Multimac E10000E driver works excellent, and I see no reason it should not work on the T420.
Moreover, regarding brightness of the screen, Fn+Home and Fn+End works on the T410. As a matter of fact, there are so many similar features of the T410 and T420 that I would expect audio and many other things to work as well.
On the downside of the T410 (and then presumably also for the T.20): no suspend-resume, no wireless (still waiting for the MultiMac Intel 6xxx drivers), and some of the FnFx buttons do not work yet. That is part of the ACPI project, where progress is made, although not as fast as we as users would like.
