    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1) Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Desktop
    2) Lenovo
    3) T400/model 2765 (2G of RAM, 500 Gb HD Hitachi 7200 RPM SATA)

    Generally speaking, it works like a Ferrari. From OS load to fully loaded (including typing pass at normal speed) clocked at 20~25 seconds.

    List of issues and tricks to take into account:

    - Don't use the suggested hardware driver for the video card, instead download the .run ATI driver from the ATI website; never activate the driver in the Harwdare panel, as it doesn't work properly. With the driver from ATI, it works just incredibly fast. Trick the BIOS settings to get rid of VISTA mode...

    - Ricoh 7in1 driver just works, refer to ThinkWiki general guide for T400 series.

    - Conexant modem driver detect the modem, so it should work (didn't use it). They also provide a better ALSA driver for the sound card codec (it seems to recompile the kernel... but apart from this scary operation, works fine). You can find the drivers on linuxant.com. Modem driver is free up to 14.4K, while the audio driver is free, altough not necessary to install.

    - Fingerprint doesn't work, until the manufacturer provide support or drivers for their fingerprint reader (different than before).

    Cheers,
    S.

    Hp Pavillion DM3 with virtualization feature in BIOS enabled.
    Running Ubuntu 10.04.1 as a virtual machine guest on Windows 7 host. Runs great, no noticeable lags. BUT, cannot run Cheesy or Skype. Does not recognize camera and mic doesn't work in Skype.

    At first I couldn't get the internal mic to work, but I think this no longer an issue in Lucid which I have at the moment.

    There are some problems with compiz - when the effects are turned on, I get a lag when maximizing windows or grabbing them while maximized (1-2secs) and fullscreening videos (5-6secs).

    In Lucid there's also a suspend issue - I can suspend 2 times, on the 3rd suspend it freezes and I have to hard-poweroff.

    Otherwise, everything works perfectly.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1) Ubuntu Netbook Edition 10.10
    2) ASUS
    3) EEE PC 1001PX

    What works:

    • Installs smoothly.
    • No issues with graphics.
    • Web cam works out of the box.
    • Fn-keys works out of the box.


    What doesn't:

    • Input/Output jack does not work as intended out of the box, only works as an output (input silences the speakers and does not seem to work). Not sure if there are any solutions available, haven't looked in to it.
    • Internal microphone doesn't work out of the box, haven't found a solution for it yet.

    Toshiba A100-027

    Installed Ubuntu on it and it runs flawlessly. Some people report of the fans not working correctly, but they work fine for me, as does the rest of the system. No faults at all!

    Everything on my Dell Mini 10v (1011) works perfectly on Ubuntu 10.04 and now upgraded to 10.10, one thing though, you need to install proprietary drivers for your wireless to work.

    Installs smoothly. Needs wired internet at first to get the Nvidia and Wifi drivers installed via the Hardware Drivers tool.

    Not working:
    The fingerprint reader is a mystery.
    Sound is touch and go and plugging headphones in doesn't mute main speakers.
    Hadware Driver Tool? is that something given to you from the maker of your laptop (HP??)
