==== Fan ====
About fan noise.. The 15z seems a lot louder fan-wise than for example my Latitude E6500. The latter has no audible fan noise, while I can clearly hear my 15z blow its fans.
Anyone here used the 15z with Windows, and noticed that it was a lot quieter there?

Just submitted the DSDT information needed to make acpi_call work for the 15z ( hopefully ) to this bugreport. Hopefully this should enable us to shut down the nvidia card if you want and just use the Intel 3000 card.
