Does any one have idea why Dell Inspiron 15R (N5110) 64 bit machine has been awarded the status of Certified on Ubuntu 32-bit? I expect it to get for the 64 bit version.

Thanks,

Generally, if a computer is 32bit compatible, it will be 64bit compatible too. (provided that the cpu is 64bit capable) I wouldn't worry about it.

I own this laptop and I'm running it with a 64bit version of Ubuntu 11.10.
It works flawlessy (apart from the touchpad that is not properly recognized. It means that you won't have multitouch gestures or scrolling enabled).

I have this machine. 32 bit ended up being a huge mess with many things not working out of the box. I tried the 64 bit install and everything pretty much worked.

The touchpad issues can be addressed with this:

No, there are several on the message board, so I think is kind of useless to start another thread about this issue.
I've tried the solution proposed my Nico0020 on his latest post, but it didn't help. Unfortunately, I'm not the only n5110 user that has this problem unsolved despite having installed Seth Forshee's patch.
