    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu 12.04
    Dell
    Latitude D430

    runs Windows Vista 64 in aqemu using kvm as well.
    only issue: computer only has max 2GB ram. Some really humongous Excel files (in LibreOffice, as well as Excel Viewer in VM) take forever to load, but the file I am thinking of even takes a while in my 4GB desktop.

    The 12.10 interface is more demanding. The cheapest way to check is to boot from a cd or usb stick and see how does it behave. If the system can not run will give a warning. I personally prefer the 12.04 with the kernel 3.4.9-030409-generic. It is easy to setup and it includes the unity-2d interface. I plan to stick with this configuration at least until the next LTS version.

    Ubuntu 10.04
    Thinkpad Lenovo
    T410 (2252)

    Issues with
    1. Display (screen inverted) external monitor wors fine
    2. Problem starting sshd (appears to be bug with upstart)

    Questions
    1. Does any version (ubuntu) fix the screen inversion problem?
    2. Is the upstart sshd bug fixed in a future release?

    I have heard that newer version of sshd fixes the upstart problem? Is the same true for the display inversion?

    Compaq (HP) 6820s
    upgrade from 12.04LTS
    does NOT work
    However, selecting kernel 3.2.0-32_generic from the GRUB menu launches Ubuntu 12.10 correctly. But kernel 3.5.0-17-generic (défault option) doew not work.

    Ubuntu 12.10

    Everything works except some of the media keys, nvidia graphics with bumblee and the realtek wireless were a bit of a pain to set up but not terrible.

    Laptop : Asus X66IC series
    Mother board version : K61IC
    Ubuntu Quantal (12.10)
    New install, /home partition preserved (not reformatted)
    All works perfectly.
    Nota Bene : Webcam is upside down on this laptop. Windows driver (and Ubuntu cheese) correct this problem. Skype still shows me upside down!http://ubuntuforums.org/images/smilies/icon_smile.gif
