Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-05-03 01:16:21 EDT
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Comment 5 Prarit Bhargava 2012-06-07 09:03:41 EDT
This laptop is not supported in RHEL.  Please see http://www.redhat.com/hardware for supported hardware.
