    SONY VAIO VGN-NS205N

    Currently running Ubuntu 11.04 (XP dual boot)

    This installation was originally 9.10 and was incrementally updated through the current 11.04.

    wireless works with no additional drivers
    integrated web cam works with no additional drivers
    fully tested at 1280X800 and 1024X768 (others unknown)
    function keys work (volume, brightness...etc)

    1 issue with ACPI, intermittent problem coming out of suspend (sometimes won't and requires restart)

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Dell Inspiron 1525

    Dual booting Ubuntu 64 bit and Vista 32 bit. (There's also MediaDirect - hidden partition with XP embedded, running MediaDirect.)

    Got 9.10 first (Kubuntu) but didn't use it. Using 11.04 now, and I love it. (upgraded from 10.10)

    Everything works, except for HDMI video/audio and that the text goes bonkers after resume from hibernation IF I didn't close a specific java game (Minecraft).

    Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal
    Acer
    Timelinex 5830tg

    A fresh install of 11.04 on the 5830tg gives you no sound through the speakers. You do get sound through headphones if you plug some into the headphone jack.

    The function keys for setting brightness brings up the OSD display as if it were raising or lowering the brightness but it does nothing. There is a solution for fixing this fn/brightness issue though.

    Additionally, the battery state always seems to fluctuate. If I charge to 100% and then log into Ubuntu I will see 4 hours remaining, but in minutes it will tell me I only have 3hrs 20min left and then 2hrs 50min and then it will jump back up to 3hrs and some minutes.

    Unity does not work out with the Nvidia geforce gt 520m included in the system. With the internet enabled and the box ticked to download updates etc during installation, you start the fresh install of Ubuntu 11.04 with the drivers for the chip already enabled. But attempt to log into Ubuntu w/ Unity and you will get an error message until you uninstall the graphics drivers.

    Lenovo N500 (42333DG). Everything works since 8.10

    HD Video Out (HDMI) on Nvidia GeForce 9300 works only on 11.04.

    Shortcut keys also work good on Natty.

    Before entering Ubuntu you need to alter the brightness up or down doesn't matter otherwise the screen goes so dark you can't see what is happening once Ubuntu has booted apart from that so far no problams.

    Toshiba L775 AMD 64 bit
    Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit

    Approx. 50% of boots fail to load keyboard and/or touchpad. Shutdown causes repeated reboots regardless of the lid switch setting in bios. Toshiba utilities add-ons don't seem to make things noticeably better. I've also tried 10.10, Mint 64 bit, but no improvement. Using ATI drivers gives no improvement.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Laptop: Gateway NV79
    OS: Ubuntu 10.10 64 bit

    Status:
    All Hardware works fantastically except sound.
    Compiz works very well.

    Audio works just fine except for one small issue.
    The audio has to be manually switched between the headphone port and the speakers. Plugging something into the headphone port does not bypass the speakers automatically.

    In order to use the headphones do the following as root or using sudo:

    nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

    look for the following line at the end of the file:

    options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-dig

    comment this line out by changing it to:

    #options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-dig

    Save and close this file. Then reload alsa using:

    sudo /sbin/alsa force-reload

    For speakers remember to open alsa-base.conf again and uncomment the line.

    After reloading alsa, you will need to restart your audio file if it was already playing while you were doing the switch.

    Compaq mini 102 works great with Ubuntu 10.04 (including wifi) and my new usb wireless logitech fullsize keyboard and mouse work great too.

    emachine e625 was working good (except wifi) with Ubuntu 10.04 and just installed 11.04 (used super OS full install) and now the wifi works too.

    I did keep windough$ in a small partition on the emachine because I can't find a linux driver for my canon scanner.

    I also have a full install of 10.04 on a flashdrive that I have used on many other laptops and desktops without any problems.
