    Ubuntu 13.04 RR
    Samsung
    Satellite M-100

    It's a pretty old machine but Raring works pretty good on it.
    I'm thinking of putting Ubuntu on a really old Acer but not sure how it will go.

    1. Ubuntu 12.04
    Asus Eee PC X101CH

    Everything works: suspend, fn keys, volume, brightness, wifi... Netbook doesn't overheat, nor is loud. Battery lenght depends, can get up to 4 hours.
    Available: Intel proprietary drivers, after updating Ubuntu & installing them, resolution can be changed.

    2. Ubuntu 12.04
    Asus K55A-SX509

    Everything works: suspend, fn keys, volume, brightness, wifi, usb3, ... Laptop not overheating, fans not lout. Battery gets up to 5 hours, depending on what you're doing.
    No proprietary Intel drivers available so far. Resolution can be changed nevertheless. Unity 3D works.
    If installing 64bit system on UEFI laptop, but without Windows, read help.ubuntu.com/community/UEFI.
    Protip: fn + enter on the keypad brings up calculator

    Dell Inspiron 5100

    Everything works with Lubuntu 13.04.


    The BIOS should be upgraded to A32. It's done in two steps (and always with power connected and a fully charged battery):

    In order to upgrade to A22 one creates a bootable CD with the ISO file from Dell, just like burning a Buntu installation CD.

    Afterwards, when booted with A22 one can run the .exe file for upgrading to A32 under Windows (or Freedos).

    With A32 it's possible to boot and install Lubuntu 13.04 from a USB stick.

    Like all Pentium 4's the CPU creates a lot of heat, so it's a good idea to remove the keyboard and then the CPU cooling unit for cleaning. It's not complicated. Remember to add new cooling paste when remounting.

    This particular 5100 did not have a wirefree card, but I had a spare Intel 2200BG which worked without any modifications.

    The only problem I've encountered is that it does not deal with faster memory than 266 MHz.

    Lenovo Ideapad Y560P

    Lenovo Ideapad Y560P (Replaced the screen with one from a Y580 for 1920 x 1080 resolution)
    AMD Radeon HD6570M
    Samsung 830 256 GB SSD
    16 GB DDR3

    Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit...Everything seems to work out of the box with the exception of the touch strip (very proprietary) and a couple of the function keys (like disabling the touchpad). Loaded with open source graphics drivers, was able to load FGLRX drivers from the driver manager with no issues. 2D and 3D performance seems very poor. UT2004 runs but is glitchy. Scrolling in desktop windows is choppy. I believe these to be due to the crappy AMD drivers and not Ubuntu itself.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Acer C7 chromebook running 12.04, very few issues, but the major one I found was when waking from sleep/suspend, CPU usage by polkitd, dbus-daemon, and consolekit-daemon spikes, and auth.log starts filling up with " Successful su for user by root" over and over. The fix was to comment out the "xset dpms force on" line in /etc/acpi/lid.sh - or just disabling acpid. haven't had a chance to look into it further.

    1) Ubuntu 12.04.2 (LTS)
    2) MSI (Microstar)
    3) GT780DX

    Issues:
    1) Installer doesn't work. Fix: you need to blacklist the nouveau driver else you get a black screen.
    2) CD/DVD Eject (soft) button doesn't work and there is no hardware button on the device, I solved this with: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2150301
    3) Keyboard Back-light (KLM in windows) doesn't work. Fix: see previous URL

    Other than that, it works like a charm!

    Samsung 535U3C works perfectly well with Ubuntu, BUT YOU WILL LOSE YOUR GUARANTEE!

    You will say that you don't need guarantees anyway. This would be true if this weren't for a Samsung.
    My new SAMSUNG 535 C3U broke down (ventilator) after less than 6 month, and there's no repair, not even paying, because they don't know if they ever will get the spare part.
