    Everything works perfectly out of the box, but it is necessary to install AMD graphics driver ( jockey flgrx is OK !!! ) and Jupiter to control power management.

    Everything, including wireless, seems to work out-of-the-box!

    The display port is not working out of the box, but on the other hand .. it wasn't either on the OEM version of win7

    Amazing. So it doesn't work at all or did you eventually manage to make it work?

    P.S.: And what about the battery life?

    Everything works out of the box. No problems so far with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

    The big advantage of this laptop is, that it is sold _without_ Windows 7 and this makes the price cheap though it is a rather robust laptop.

    Touchpad right click issues, Wifi randomly crashes, combo jack (headphones/mic) not properly supported and sometimes Ubuntu crashes for no reason. In overall works great, but there's just little info to workaround thos issues.

    Manufacturer: Lenovo
    Model: T61 (6457)

    Wireless works out of box (Centrino vPro based). Middle button scroll works. Function keys and volume keys all work. Nvidia NVS140M works with Current drivers. System runs hot and drains battery quickly unless you add

    Code:
    pcie_aspm=force
    flag to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in Grub.

    Runs cool and stable otherwise. Glad to see some peoples reporting on the T430 as that's likely to be the machine that replaces my old workhorse.

    Works out-of-the-box although I haven't tried the webcam yet.
    Wireless worked fine during setup.
    Some people say I'm a man of few words, but the fact is that most people talk too much without actually saying anything.

    Everything except the webcam works well with Lubuntu 12.04.

    Installation should be done using wired internet access, and updates should be applied first time they are offered, else the system is unstable.

    After a reboot it's time to get the wirefree working. The command

    Code:
    lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4
    shows the name of the controller ( most likely BCM4318 ). If you have this one, the command

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install firmware-b43-installer
    installs all necessary drivers.
