    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1. Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (Mint/Xubuntu/Ubuntu all tried)
    2. Samsung
    3. Netbook N102SP

    What works:
    • Wifi
    • USB
    • Onboard audio out
    • Onboard ethernet
    • Onboard bluetooth
    • Jack speaker cancellation
    • Onboard SD reader
    • Battery hardware monitor
    • Onboard webcam (no mic though)
    • Function keys (See link at end of post)
    • Sleep/resume
    • Lid close sleep

    What doesn't work :

    • Brightness function keys
    • VGA monitor port
    • Graphics adaptor
    • Onboard mic

    For full details and a couple of workarounds for the brightness issues, please see this cross-post set up specifically at addressing the things that don't work:

    At time of posting, graphics driver, mic, brightness and VGA connections still remain a no-go which is a shame given that so much works well.

    I am posting from my Lenovo X220 running Ubuntu 12.04. Everything works 100% out of the box without proprietary drivers.

    ALMOST everything works. The modem does not work - it is a Conexant chip, and a pita to get working. The fingerprint scanner does not work. Pretty minor stuff usually - except I bought this laptop (refurb) for my sister who doesn't have a computer - and she will have to use dial-up. Still, I have gotten a pcmcia modem to work in the box - with only minor headaches, and about 4 hours invested. Outside of those two glitches, all is gorgeous.

    Works well! Fingerprint reader needs a package installed, but can be configured and works.
    Sound and multi-card reader work.

    What doesn't work:
    Fn keys: only a few are functional (the Fn-9 key combo for turning the touchpad mouse on/off is working), this cannot be rectified since I have a Phoenix BIOS.

    3)NP550P5CI - 6GB/intel i5/1TB HDD/intel integrated graphics

    Works well with the exception of the ACPI subsystem giving false information about battery state. If you boot it up running on the battery and then plug in the power supply it won't acknowledge it's there but it is charging all the same. Not a show stopper.

    Intel graphics is fine with video with the exception of Google earth which reports limited 3D performance.

    Very impressed with the automatic configuration of dual screen setup when using external monitor. Very handy for hot desking and a lot less painful than editing Xorg.conf in the bad old days.

    Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin
    Thinkpad L430 N2L36MD

    Right after purchase the HDD was replaced with an Intel 330 120GB SSD. Ubuntu 12.04 installed and updated flawlessly.

    Only problem encountered is unstable / slow WiFi. This model shipped with the Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter.

    Still looking for a fix.
