    Toshiba TECRA R950 (PT535A-002023)

    All I can say is ... it rocks!

    To cut a long story short, set up an old Dell D420, which I've mentioned on this thread, for a friend that just started uni, until she could afford her new comp. With my advice, she went for the Tosh Tecra, a nice machine for a nice price, and what I did was clone the / and /home partitions of the Dell and plopped them on the Tecra with the idea of lessening her learning curve and cutting down my time setting up the new machine. I can report there are no issues, everything working out of the box. Vid, sound, network, Skype, music, everything! It's a really fast, up to date replica of a dozen year old Dell. What's not to love???

    I'm very impressed and she's now setup for three or four years of uni. And beyond ...

    PS: First thing I did with the new Tecra was to back up the preinstalled Win7 to DVD using the Win software then wiped the lot. Cloned the Dell partitions and that was it. Took awhile to nut out and get right, but that's it. No issues.

    PPS: As I described when I originally installed the Dell, mini install with xfce4 DE and only what she needs for uni. I just finished seven years of uni myself so I had a VERY good idea of what might/will/would be required for her future study. Same uni, different degree.

    Acer Aspire E1-572-6870

    I was a bit nervous buying my Acer Aspire E1-572-6870, because I was getting no results when I googled about its compatibility. I finally decided that it's probably a good thing that there is not much about it, because 90% of the time, when people post about their laptops and linux, it's something like "Please help me fix a, b, and c"
    Report is: works beautifully. The two things I was most worried about were graphics and wifi. I installed Ubuntu 14.04 and both worked out of the box.
    Solid Laptop. Runs Linux like a boss.

    Compaq CQ43-32TU
    After network upgrade from 12.04 to 14.04:
    * Unity DE ... the performance is 100% slow and always STUCKED/HANG
    * Classic (Compiz) ... OK
    * Classic (Metacity) ... top panel is missing (sometimes and always). Personally face the problem 4-times. So I shift to Classic (Compiz) and will give it LXDE a try.
    Thank you

    The only problem, which still remain is Display Brightness setting ... needs to be adjusted manually (Fn+7 or Fn+8).
    Regarding to Bluetooth, I never use it. So, I don't know.

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M 2GB DDR3
    4GB RAM

    Bluetooth tends to disconnect my mouse, but I'm working on it

    When I bought it I had Windows 8.1 on it and it was getting so slow although it was very new. In Xubuntu 14.04 it works fast and smooth, there are no CPU and RAM problems at all and I can use several applications without lag. Even the slow hard drive seems to run better with Xubuntu.

    @czgirb: I recently bought a new computer, but before that i had a similar one to yours (Compaq CQ56, Intel integrated graphics... Unity was terrible, I used XFCE and it was very happy. Be sure to install the Xfce indicator plugin to get all your Unity indicators).

    Lenovo Z50-70: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
    8GB RAM, 1TB Hard drive, runs Ubuntu really well including under heavy loads on only the Intel graphics, trying to work out the ins and outs of Bumblebee/ Primus atm to get fully switchable graphics. (Edit: this is tough)
