    Using Dell Inspiron 1545, Dual core, 4GB Ram, 500GB

    Kubuntu 11.04 64bit with Linux kernel 3 (Flying !! )

    Ubuntu 11.04 don't work with Kernel 3.(crash alot)

    Install latest Intel graphics drivers from http://intellinuxgraphics.org/index.html and also try out the Edgers driver for Intel it rocks!

    Fan working properly after upgrading to kernel 3 (need to install i8kutils).

    Consider this as a moderate power notebook?

    My rig:

    Rig: HP G62-455DX Notebook
    Processor: Intel Core i3 CPU M350
    RAM: 4G
    System: 64-Bit
    Installed OS: Win7

    Switched over to Ubu back in June, very few issues out of the box.

    Working HP's HotKeys:
    Print, Calculator, Internet key, Wifi, and Sound volume keys all work

    Media hot key and e-mail hot key do not work.

    Thanks to Chili555 and his Ralink wireless card instructions got WiFi to work properly in no time.

    Touch pad sometimes reacts in crazy and not so stable ways. Last night the mouse pointer seemed to be dancing across the screen and randomly clicking. (is my laptop haunted?) Downloaded the GPointing Device software which allows me to use my Logitech wireless mouse and shutoff the touchpad. Other than that, the touchpad works ok.

    Thanks for reading, hope this info helps.

    ASUS G73SW-XT1 - Intel Core i7-2630QM 2.0GHz, 8GB DDR3 PC 10600 1333MHZ, 500GB 7200rpm HDD, Blu-ray/DVDRW, 17.3" Full HD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M, USB 2.0/3.0, Backlit Keyboard, 8-in-1 media reader, 2.0 MPixel webcam.

    Installed PinguyOS version of Ubuntu with great results. Everything worked well except the screen brightness Fn Keys and the backlit keyboard. Easily fixed with help on the NotebookReview forum thread on Linux drivers and on this site about ASUS G73SW Linux WMI setup by lwarranty from NotebookReview.

    This notebook really flys. I can process a 100 min DVD with Handbrake in about 20-25 minutes on High Profile. It's a bit heavy though, but worth the weight.

    Update 11-24-2011
    I still have trouble with the touchpad going crazy every so often.

    Angry Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    For the moment I am running 10.04 LTS, as it appears that 11.04 64 bit locks up, or goes to a black screen. My HP Pavilion G6 has an ATI HD 3400 graphics card and from what I've read on various forums, 11.04 (install) does not like my card. 10.04 64 bit installs with no problems. Whenever the black screen bug is resolved, I will install 11.04 64 bit. Just one note, the 32 bit version of 11.04 installs and runs fine.

    I wish some Ubuntu geek with more skills than I have would make a custom disk with what works (on install) from 32 bit Natty but on a 64 bit natty disk?
