    8.04 32 bit AND 10.04 64bit
    Compaq Presario R4000 (Dinosaur, I know) with the AMD Athlon 64 chip
    Everything works perfectly (never tested the modem).
    The pointer will disappear on occasion when waking up from suspend in 10.04

    Open GL did not function with 9.04 32 or 64 bit.

    1/ Dell Inspiron 1545 10.04 64 bit, everything works, however, I had to connect to ethernet to get the wireless STA driver installed. Wireless works great. This is a dual-boot with 7 and lucid seems to be quite a bit more responsive than windows. The CPU temp is a few degrees higher in ubuntu than in 7 and the fan kicks on at a little higher temp (55-65c), but still well below the shut off of 105c. May have to wait until maverick.
    edit May 21 2011: Removed win7 and use lucid exclusively. Shortly after the original posting above, ubuntu ran cooler than 7 after a kernel update. Now runs around 42-46 degrees or so.

    2/ Dell Inspiron Mini 1012, 10.04 netbook edition, again everything works and again had to start with ethernet to get the atheros wireless driver installed. This is a dual-boot with xp home and the wireless doesn't work a @#!$ in windows, but works perfectly in ubuntu.
    edit May 21 2011: After several months, got my son to figure out the atheros card in XP, now works, albeit flaky, still better in lucid.

    3/ An old "self built" circa 2002 desktop athlon 1800+, runs 10.04 32 bit and other than a tad slow, everything works great. It is my download machine.

    ubuntu 10.04
    compaq
    Presario 2570us

    fully functional.
    but it will not wake from suspend. but this was also a problem with windows which compaq released a few bios updates which didn't work for me either. I think it's a video card problem like my desktop had.

    Blank screen at start up for live cd and install, however, control of modeset as describe in
    http://www.ubuntugeek.com/how-to-fix...#comment-42657

    Solution 2 works great for this laptop
    summary:
    at end of boot string (live cd use F6)
    i915.modeset=0 xforcevesa

    Audio and video work but mic does not, gnome sound recorder also apparently not.
