    Works perfectly out of the box.

    As far as I have experianced, all HCL laptops work perfectly ( eg mine, mom's, friends , etc)
    Ubuntu 12.04 (best thing after 10.04) |Intel Dual Core 2.0GHz|1 Gb DDR2 RAM|Nvidia 8600GM| This PC was bartered for with an iRock from ancient Mesopotamia

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    I installed 10.04 on an Asus UL20A.

    The install went without any hitch. Everything works quite well, including hibernating.

    I had only one problem : screen flickering, which I solved in the following way:

    The overclocking function provided in the BIOS was originally set at 3% on a scale of 1 to 5%.

    I set it at 1%.

    The screen flicker has disappeared and I have not seen any loss of performance resulting from the 2% overclocking drop.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu -- 10.04 (Latest Stable as of august)
    2)Laptop Maker -- Hewlett Packard
    3)Laptop Model -- DV5Z-1000 CTO (Wireless is the B/G Card, ill get chipset later)



    Works perfectly, even my C4385 HP printer installed easily. ATI unsupported or whatever they are called drivers worked fine so far in 2D have yet to try 3D.

    Thumbs down Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu 10.04
    2)Laptop Maker Fujitsu Siemens
    3)Laptop Model Amilo pro 2055 upgraded to 1GB RAM

    Only problem I had was when originally installed the physical monitor was set at 1600x1200, and wouldn't change, needed to be set at 1280x800, once done works a charm.

    Also wouldn't try it with the standard 256mb RAM. Definitely needs upgrading to 1GB.

    Dell Studio 15

    - Core i7-720QM
    - 4 GB DDR3
    - ATI Mobility Radeon 5470

    - works perfectly, except that you have to, at the time of this posting, use the latest video drivers from ATI's website to get full 3D support, and you have to change a BIOS setting to make F1-F12 work in a sane manner.
    Intel core i5-2400, 8GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti

    Dell Mini 10 (also tested on Dell Mini 9)
    Ubuntu 10.04

    Everything works smoothly with some tweaks:

    +Must have wired internet connection to install wireless drivers
    +Webcam recording lags in every program except WxCam. However, webcam transfers works perfectly in Skype and aMSN.

    Dell Inspiron E1505
    Ubuntu 10.04

    Everything works as far as I remember. I lost my tip to my charger and have to get another one.
    I haven't played around much with it but do not remember any problems.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu: Every Version since 7.04 through to 10.10
    2)Laptop Maker: Acer
    3)Laptop Model: Extensa 2300.

    Check the link above for obvious issues and problems. Five that I will note here and now are

    1. Since Lucid I have had to set i915.nomodeset=1 in the kernel command line to get the graphics to operate.
    2. Current Maverick (Alpha 3) when running in normal mode doesn't show a mouse/touchpad curser yet it is still there hidden in the background.
    3. Ndiswrapper no longer works with Maverick (kernel compatibility issues) and it looks like they are not going to try fixing it.
    4. Ureadahead really kills this machine because of its low RAM (256MB), if it had 1GB or more I think it would be fine.
    5. Don't try installing anything by CD past 9.10 AlternateCD as it simply will not do it with 256MB of RAM. Update via Update Manager works well though.
