Re: Turbo Memory



It is just about a year ago that Claude submitted the inquiry below. I'm
seriously looking at the Lenovo ThinkPad T500, and it is offering a 2 Gb
Turbo Memory device. Can Fedora 10 use this? Is there an open-source
driver anywhere?

The Lenovo website is saying if I pick this I will have to give up the
integrated Bluetooth PAN, but I assume I can just add a Bluetooth
thingie as an ExpressCard or PC Card. Or maybe I can do the reverse --
keep the integrated PAN and hunt around for an ExpressCard Turbo Memory
thingie...

Thanks
