    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Antique Dell Latitude D800 with Nvidia Geforce4 Ti 4200 Go 32 Mb AGP 8x video card. After a long hiatus (8.04.4) I am able to boot from a Live-CD (Xubuntu 12.04.1) using nouveau and the 'nomodeset' boot option. Nvidia driver 96.43.20 does not work with xorg xserver versions 11 & 12 from Precise, so until Jockey is updated to utilize Nvidia 96.43.23 I have had to roll back to the xorg xserver version 10 from Oneiric. Jockey is scheduled to be updated at some point to work with 12.04 & Nvidia 96.43.23.

    This Pentium M model requires a non-PAE kernel, so no 12.10.

    I just saw a totally strange smell and it felt like it was really sour. Oh well, must've been hearing things.

    ASUS K53E, the icore 5 laptop works brilliantly and runs cooler as well compared to its discrete card counterparts. Best of all it does HDMI movies via VLC without any hitch all the way up to 1080P. Make sure to load the intel-microcode whether using 12.04 or 12.10 as there are microcode updates for this CPU.

    Cool HP Pavilion dm4-3002ea

    HP Pavilion dm4-3002ea
    Ubuntu 12.04 and 12.10

    works almost ok. The ATI card is the biggest issue as with 12.10 only the opensource drivers work but power saving can be tricky. I have to run these whenever my laptop reboots:

    echo profile > /sys/class/drm/card1/device/power_method
    echo low > /sys/class/drm/card1/device/power_profile

    to enable power saving for the graphics card (otherwise the fan is always on and hot air comes out of the laptop)

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu 12.04.1
    Maker: HP
    Model: G62-453TU

    Minor Issues:
    All hardware except bluetooth up and running out of the box. Problem was solved by executing following command in the terminal.
    sudo bccmd psset -s 0x0000 0x028c 0x0001

    Internal microphone create a lot of background noise while recording or on skype.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Asus 1201T netbook with Radeon 3200 graphics, FGLRX installed.
    4 GB RAM single stick, Athlon Neo 1.6 GHz processor

    Everything works out of the box. The only issue is really high battery drain, even with frequency scaling enabled compared to XP.

    Kubuntu 12.04 with ppa for KDE 4.9
    Jupiter installed - supposed to enhance cool-n-quiet from AMD

    Issue:
    Neo Processor is not undervolted when running at 800 MHz so there is not much difference in power saving running at 1.6 or 800 MHz and battery is gobbled up. I can remedy this bu running RightMark CPUclock in XP. I can get the voltage down to about 0.75 and gives me about 15-20% more battery time.

    I am investigating how to manage this in Ubuntu. Theoretically, the Jupiter program is supposed to assist with this, but I only notice that it just locks the CPU down to 800 MHz in "powersave" which is the equivalent to "cpufreq-set -g powersave"

    The fan stays on pretty high and oddly, seemingly higher on battery than when plugged into AC.

    PowerPlay is enabled in the Catalyst Control Center which is supposed to reduce GPU drain when on battery.

    Question Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Make: ASUS
    Model: K53E
    Version: 12.04.1 LTS Precise Pangolin(64-bit)

    Compatibility:
    Function keys work; volume controls integrated seamlessly. Touchpad has slight issues running with games, recommend using external mouse. Onboard Graphics, WiFi and other hardware functions as well in Precise Pangolin as in Windows 7. Full, automatic driver support.

    Notes:
    Beautifully dual boots with Windows 7, menu simple and uncluttered, boot time >30 seconds.

    I would highly recommend the ASUS K53E for anyone wishing to run Ubuntu versions 10+, it's my primary system now.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Packard Bell Easynote TE11HC
    Intel B820 CPU (1700 MHz Dual Cored Celeron Mobile)
    8 GB RAM
    Intel HD Graphics
    750 GB HDD
    DVD-RW Drive

    Works perfectly except for brightness cannot be altered at all.
    This can be fixed by editing boot/grub/grub.cfg and replacing this:

    "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"

    With this:

    "GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux acpi_backlight=vendor"
