    You can try Xubuntu (any version). Have you tried it?I think it'll be ideal for your laptop, hopefully.

    hey,
    I`m using a 2.5 year old vaio fw series with an intel 2.8gh core2dou, 4g ram, 320g hdd and ati 1g gpu, i installed ubuntu on top of my windows vista cuz the lack of space for a swap drive! and the only problem is the amd graphics driver update that doesn't install properly, apart from that I`m satisfied. and I`m doing 90% of my stuff here even gaming

    Hello all...first post I have had Ubuntu on my desktop pc for over a year now and tried to install it on my bros laptop dell inspiron 1526, I noticed it wasn't on the compatibility list and wondering why and if anyone has found a fix or has installed Ubuntu successfully. I installed Ubuntu last night starting with 12.04 and all I seen was the wallpaper, so I figured it was a bug with 12.04 and this laptop so I installed 10.10 and same issue but I was able to get into terminal and upgrade to 11.04 and I am still having the issue...done tons of research but havent found anything...I see the login screen but after that it just goes to wallpaper, I hit ctrl/alt f7 and it shows the desktop but I cannot click on anything. I was really hoping to get this installed for him so he didnt have to use that garbage people call windows

    EDIT: Ok I can log in under guest session and everything works but why is everything unusable when I log into the account I made for him?

    Next month I'll be testing the 750 and 770 series. then I'll be trying out 775's when they release
    It should also be noted that Ubuntu is usable on Qosmio X3 series, but I do not have spec sheets on those laptops in front of me. Look at it this way degrade them by month and year.. e.g. the last X3xx had the best processor and gfx, the first had the worst.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    I recently purchased a Dell Inspiron 15R from Costco.

    Specs:

    Core i7-2670QM
    6GB RAM
    500GB HDD
    Intel HD 3000 graphics
    Intel Wireless-N 1030 with Bluetooth
    1.0MP webcam
    3 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0
    HDMI
    RGB

    Since the laptop uses Intel HD 3000 video Ubuntu 10.04 would not work. I installed Mint 12 as I don't like Unity at all (waiting for 12.04).

    Everything worked OOB besides the HDMI out.
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.
