    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    I have an ASUS B53J laptop with an intel i5 processor.

    I'm running 12.04, with some sort of customized setting that provides a GNOME desktop environment prior to Unity.

    It did not work initially, but it turns out that it came with a defective motherboard. So... thanks a bunch, Asus.

    Once that was fixed, everything has worked very well.

    Sound driver does not seem to work either. Still troubleshooting.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu: 12.04 LTS / 13.10
    2)Laptop Maker: Asus
    3)Laptop Model: X501A1

    Actually, this laptop comes with Ubuntu preinstalled! It has the sticker too
    No problems with installation at all, follow normal procedures.

    WIFI ISSUE
    The wifi works out of the box, but with the default open source driver (rt2800pci) the signal is very weak. You can compile the official Ralink drivers (rt5390sta) in order to get full signal strength.

    For Ubuntu 12.04 follow these instructions: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post12628115
    For Ubuntu 13.10 (with kernel 3.12+): http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...5#post12919995

    Asus U30JC-B1

    Best linux laptop I ever owned. Everything works!!! The only thing that needed a bit of tweaking was the Optimus graphics but its a simple process to setup. The solution was just a google search away

    I even get about 7 - 8 hours of battery in Elementary OS.
    Screw you guys I'm going home!!!
