    Ubuntu 10.04 LTS
    Acer
    One Aspire 110L Netbook (1Gb Ram, 16Gb SSD)

    I partitioned the SSD with 6.6Gb for /, 7.3Gb for ?home and 2.2Gb swap.

    Everything works out of the box except for the fan control and the right side SD card reader. I used fixed both with some of the info from here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne/110L

    I also tried a couple of the SSD tweaks: elevator=noop in GRUB & noatime in fstab for /

    When I originally bought the netbook in 2008 it had Linpus Lite installed, which I wiped and installed 8.04, later upgraded to 9.04. It had been running slower so rather than update, I backed up my data and did a clean install of 10.04 after wiping the drive with PartedMagic. It seems to be faster, booting to the password for my wifi in about 35 to 40 seconds from cold. Sound all works, the camera works, Skype works, suspend works (wakes up and connects to wifi in about 15 seconds), and with the fan control enabled it is completely silent, except when it is working hard (eg playing a movie).

    Will wait for 12.04 before doing any further upgrades.

    Works with Ubuntu 11.10, however;

    Some issues with screen dimming by itself during the install and login, you need to use FN + F3 to bring the brightness back up.
    Wi-Fi seems to be rather flaky.

    OS version: Ubuntu 11.04 64bit (Natty), Gnome 2.31.1 (with Classic desktop)
    Manufacturer: DELL
    Laptop Model: Inspiron 1521

    AMD Turion 64 x2 1.6GHz Dual Core, 4Gb DDR2, 120Gb HDD

    Everything worked out of the box. 11.04 seems to have fixed the problems with the Broadcom wireless driver. In fact the wifi worked with the live CD.

    This version has no built in webcam but I found a Logitech QuickCam 3000 for Business works fine with Cheese and Skype.

    The Firewire connection allows me to import from my DV camera using Kino and edit with OpenShot.

    I use built in card reader to import and edit photos in GIMP.

    I installed VirtualBox and a Windows XP Pro guest for Office 2007. Works fine.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu version: 11.10 (64 bit)
    Laptop maker: HP
    Laptop model: Mini 110-3700

    Installation was a peach. Works out of the box.
    Battery use improves after install and configuration labtop-mode-tools.
    Watching web video, such as flash, in browser can cause high cpu usage (general Ubuntu (Linux?) problem? Haven't figured that one out yet.).
    The wireless adapter seems a lot quicker than previous Ubuntu versions as well.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu version: 11.10 (64 bit)
    Laptop maker: Toshiba
    Laptop model: Satellite C640

    Most of the things works out of the box, the WLAN adapter, touchpad etc. (fedora and openSUSE had issues with the touchpad). However some of the Fn keys are not working, like Fn+F8 should switch on the Wireless but it is not working, Fn+F4 should Hibernate the laptop but that's not working either...and couple of other similar small issues. Everything else works fine, screen dimming, volume control,suspend etc...


    If anyone can help me resolve the issues with the Fn key, it'd be much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    11.10 ubuntu 64 bit
    Lenovo
    b570

    intel core i3
    8 gig ram
    intel 6250 wireless card (it had atheros from factory)

    connecting to wifi had issues (easily solved by search of this forum)

    the first time i installed 11.10 it didn't want to boot because of the uefi bios and grub 2 dont get along, so i moved to mint for a while (defaults to grub legacy) but uppon returning it now boots fine without any modifications.

    other than that it runs perfectly and fast.
