    I have to say I'm amazed. It all works "out of the box".
    Using Cinnamon desktop instead of Unity.

    OS: Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit (dual boot with Windows 7 Ultimate)
    Make: Asus
    Model: Eee PC 1005HA (Intel Atom N270 1.6ghz, 2GB RAM)

    I thought I'd give this little netbook something lighter than Win7 to chew on, and it's worked great for the most part. The only issue I've had is being unable to log into my Cisco e1200 router, that I flashed with DD-WRT and use as a repeater (but it will connect using Win7). It hooks up to every other router I've tried it with, no problem. Edited to add - I've had the same problem with Lubuntu on an AMD64 desktop with a Realtek wireless card, so I suspect the problem is an incompatibility between Ubuntu and the particular DD-WRT builds my router can use.

    Works, with some tinkering. The only issue I haven't been able to fix is that the fan doesn't work well and it gets very hot. Other issues and how they were solved:
    1. Suspend didn't work (although hibernate did): fixed using this solution: http://wafflesatnoon.com/2012/11/17/...e-up-my-quest/
    2. Sound didn't work: fixed by installing pulseaudio and pavucontrol, then entering the commands "gpasswd -a [my user name] audo" and "killall pulseaudio"
    3. Had to edit .config/openbox/lubuntu-rc.xml in order to get function keys to work

    update/edit: to send files to my Blackberry 9930 I needed to install Blueman bluetooth manager, as the default ubuntu application failed to send files.
    update/edit: upon reinstalling Ubuntu 12.04 64bit the native Bluetooth application now works, no need to install Blueman.

    Dual-booting the Ubuntu alongside Mint 14 Xfce. Mint and Ubuntu installed very easily, the latter needing just some wee tinkering to get DVDs happily playing. Love Linux.

    works good, but with dual graphics AMD HD 7640G+7470M can't use power saver vga (gnome shell not working) only crossfire vga works well.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1) Version: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (64 bit)
    2) Laptop maker: HP
    3) Laptop model: Pavilion dv6-3122sa

    Smooth installation, everything I've tried works apart from HDMI out.

    IMPORTANT: The open source graphics driver does work, but causes laptop to run 25C hotter than under Windows, so proprietary driver is recommended. HOWEVER the proprietary driver is not compatible with GNOME (default desktop environment), so use KUBUNTU (comes with KDE desktop environment) then install fglrx.

    Loving Ubuntu!
