    Maker: Hewlett Packard
    Model: G72
    Ubuntu: 10.04

    Everything worked OK but was unable to set up dual boot to boot into Windows. There was a small partition on the original set up labelled as "System" and I suspect the MBR was there and Grub wasn't looking there for it. As a result I decided to ditch Windows completely.

    There was no sound on the internal speakers though external ones worked OK. That was resolved by installing new drivers from the manufacturer's website (Realtec)

    The touchpad mouse is very sensitive which causes problems when typing.

    Laptop: FUJITSU SIEMENS ESPRIMO V5535
    Ubuntu version 9.10 installed inside windows using wubi.

    Only problem was SIS Grapics. Downloaded and installed deb file now works ok. I wish there was a deb file to do this for 10.4, as the one for 9.10 does not work.

    Installed under Win XP SP3 and works great on dual boot.. FN keys don't do anything except adjust LCD brightness; however Panel software has no effect on adjusting LCD brightness. Occasional lock-ups in OS; reboot brings me back to life.

    1)10.10 RC (64-bit)
    2)Acer
    3)Aspire AS7551G-5821

    In use for a week now, and it's an awesome machine. Wiped Windows, running a clean install of Maverick release candidate.

    Everything works perfectly with no fiddling EXCEPT the screen will not resume from suspend (which appears to be a common and unresolved issue with ATI cards).

    Runs pretty much perfectly out-of-the-box. Note: 10.04.1 LTS didn't even boot (at least with encrypted LVM).

    1. Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 (upgraded from 9.10 via Update Manager)
    2. HP
    3. Pavilion dv6000

    10.04 LiveCD would not work as it corrupted the monitor every time I tried to boot with it. I downloaded the 9.04 LiveCD, installed it, and then used Update Manager to upgrade. Everything works fine in 10.04 if it is installed through the Update Manager.

    Laptop is running smoothly, albeit a few problems (see my threat in the NON-COMPATIBILITY list). Aside from these, the basic elements that are required for the laptop to run are working properly, including the TouchPad (sort of), audio, graphic drivers, headphone/speaker output, built-in web cam, built-in microphone, USB ports, CD ROM, and the battery.

    Install was flawless.

    Had a problem with the video blanking out after a period of time, but the update manager found / installed an updated driver and now everything is great.

    Also running Virtualbox with Windows XP; had to install more memory, but it works great as well.
