To get an idea of how easy or difficult Ubuntu on laptops is, check out this page:
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/HardwareSupportMachinesLaptops

I have a question about the page the above link goes to.

I looked at it, out of curiosity, and noticed that my laptop model isn't on there. It runs Dapper, and it works nicely, with a couple of exceptions so small that they don't bother me. I can't even list them without actively searching for them first, and writing them down so I won't forget about them. I'm now thinking that adding my laptop model to the list may benefit other users who are looking for Ubuntu laptop info. How do I go about doing that?

Thanks, Aysiu. I should have done that myself, now that I think about it. Sorry for the extra work. :)
