    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Sony Vaio Duo 13 (tablet & i7 laptop with Haswell processor) won't work with Ubuntu 12.04, 13.04 or 13.10. Can't load as system constantly goes back to Windows 8 even after Ubuntu is in place on separate harddisk partition. This may be more a problem with dual boot install, but as I have not found way to erase windows 8 (even tried reformatting disk and still booted to windows 8), I have reported it as incompatibility issue.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    HP Elite 7100 (i7 Intel processor with 8 GB RAM) does not upgrade to Ubuntu 13.10 from 13.04. Every time (using a variety of ways) I get an error message.

    Not sure this is right forum for this report, but if it can attach terminal screen read for anyone who can help.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    2008 HP G50-133us Core2 Duo 2.17 gig with 3 gigs memory 2.5 g/min ethernet.


    How it works in Ubuntu12.04
    Games and DX: I play an online FPS called Urban Terror at full resolution to test coming out @ 45 or so fps.
    Internet: Sometimes when on the internet I get a hang up from all the graphical content used in websites nowadays but noone hacks this Linux chocking up the connection. I asked somewhere if there was a way of running Web programs @ 16 bit so maybe this will improve.

    Chromium runs better than the rest.

    Compressed packages: .deb

    Memory: 3 Gigs is fine for running 12.04 but is pretty much maxed out.

    Hardware: Third party drivers are the best in Linux. The shiznaz; in fact unavailable for my laptop inside Windows. I get mine from Xorg and script from Phoronix, look up SNA in Intel drivers. Overall Ubuntu and Mint in fact fulfill the dream of many ops wanting to tweak their compys as the Unix and Linux systems all this.

    This computer doesn't like Windows below XP nor Above 7, for some reason, but Ubuntu and Mint are better than all of 'em..

    There is little antagonistic duplicity, a little. I think some of this is multciplicity in packages, which is hard to fathom, but a big plus as it must be a lot of work to keep up.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    What do you mean by "AFAIK", does everything work ot not?

    I have an T510 (43494JG, i7-M620, nvidia NVS3100M, no optimus) and 12.04 to 13.10 (amd64) do work except the graphics. Using the nouveau driver the system crashes occasionally when using openGL applications (so it crashes running unity) and the nvidia driver does not work at all, lightdm starts but does not show login prompt or just crashes (kernel panic).

    But I am not sure if this is a hardware failure. Running Win7, the graphics card works fine.

    Lenovo G580 with Core i3 (2.5Ghz) and Atheros Wifi: Everything works great, but camera which is recognized, but incorrectly initialized. I see glitches instead of screen when run in Skype or Cheese. Only VLC opens it (when other program was not playing camera before). If somebody can suggest something please write here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/29633...not-recognized
