    Everything works smoothly since install. From Function keys to graphics, from wireless to bluetooth, never had a singular problem.

    The only thing I can't vouch for is TV-OUT, since I've never use it.

    Using Lubuntu 12.04:

    After upgrading to 1,5 GB memory everything works well - surprisingly well when one considers that the computer is from 2002. Resolution is 1400 * 1050.

    Flashblock or similar helps a lot on the browsing speed.

    The 2,4 GHz Pentium 4 processor needs efficient cooling. This guide shows how to clean it from dust (don't remove the entire cooling unit, just open its top cover). The processor does not have SpeedStep, so it runs full speed, which in turn makes the fan run most of the time.

    The fan does a good job in keeping the temperature in the range of 40 - 50 ° C, but expect some noise.

    Many forum posts warn about problems after upgrading the BIOS, so it's probably better to leave it where it is.

    It's likely to work for 12.10 also, but I didn't have a CD around for testing.

    I am also using Dell Inspiron 1564 and didn't face any installation problem. I really liked its ease of compatibility with different - different platforms. Ubuntu is running fantastic on my laptop.

    Ubuntu: 12.04

    Just had to do a couple tweaks for keyboard to be able to change screen brightness and of course, install bumblebee

    Otherwise works fantastic.

    ASUS X53U (sx278V)

    Everything works from a clean install of 12.04 LTS.
    Wireless works from the live disc so simplifies install.
    I'm now using Gnome shell.
    Beta additional AMD graphics driver to use Steam.
    Keyboard shortcuts for brightness, volume and mute all immediately recognised after install.
    1366x768 screen resolution. Very crisp display.
    SD card reader works immediately as do all USB sockets.
    Having accepted the updates and extras during install, everything, including DVD, is ready to go.

    (Off Topic Alert
    Thanks to the shenanigans from Adobe with their Flash player in Chrome my wife has finally
    allowed me to install 12.04 LTS (with Gnome shell) on her Sony. She loves it, very pleased.)
    I'll add the Vaio to the list now.

    Sony VAIO VGN NW20EF

    No additional drivers are offered (intel graphics) .. all seems well.

    This is my wifes laptop. She has been 'happy' with W7 until Adobe Flash gave her grief with a non responsive popup.
    I've initially left her to try Unity but after observing Gnome desktop on mine she finds she's happier with that, so she now also has Gnome shell installed.
    I'm impressed how quickly she's taken to it.
    I had to promise her she would be able to access W7 ... she has never booted into Windows7 in the two weeks since she got Ubuntu.
    She often says as she shuts her laptop down "I like my Ubuntu"...I only ever heard her say I like my pink Vaio before (two years ago when it was new).
    She's impressed with how clean and functional Ubuntu is (particularly likes the Gnome hot corner for switching between apps... me too)
    My wife has always been competent but now she's getting positively 'geeky'. She's been a pensioner for a few years.
