2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo - 4MB shared L2 cache with ATI Mobility
Radeon X1600 with 256MB of GDDR3 SDRAM

Thank's for that. Yep, it is 64-bit capable with EM64T & with Intel
Vitualization.

I do not know yet whether 2.6.19 or 2.6.20-rc5 supports  and iSight
Video Camera, ATI DDR3 support, Apple Mobile Remote Control, and some
sensors like Motion, Light, Thermal, etc. (any suggestion where to
look for linux support?).
