    I have been using Linux for 5 years
    Is it the 'Dell 9100 laptop' that you use? Does everything work out of the box with it?

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1. Ubuntu 11.10
    2. Dell
    3. Vostro 3350 dual graphics

    Everything works fine, except the dual graphic. I can install the driver (but not the updated version) for the AMD/ATI Radeon, but when I want to run the ATI configuration program, I receive a message that no AMD/ATI vga is installed.

    Ubuntu 11.10 on HP mini 5101 netbook with 1 gig ram. Strangely, Xubuntu installation crashed every time and attempts to install Xubuntu and Lubuntu desktops from Ubuntu borked the system; Kubuntu desktop didn't work so well either (programs kept crashing) but at least WORKED. However, a clean install of Ubuntu with Unity 2D works absolutely perfectly. I thought it was for high-end machines? Go figure.

    1. Ubuntu 11.10, Ubuntu 11.04, Kubuntu 10.10 (all 64-bit)
    2. Sony
    3. Vaio "Y Series": VPCYB35KX

    everything that i've tried "works" with all three 'buntus. with all of them i recommend installing the most recent ATI Catalyst Driver (instructions HERE). suspend and hibernate both work (though hibernate is really slow). internal audio, mic, webcam, wifi all work. have not attempted to use bluetooth, card readers or HDMI as of yet. i installed an SSD and that works without a hitch as well...

    the total install/setup for this laptop was easily under an hour!

    1. Ubuntu 11.10 both with UNITY and GNOME Classic (fallback).
    2. Lenovo
    3. G770

    The following worked fine out of the box:
    sound, webcam, memory card reader, bluetooth, wlan and so on.

    Both webcam and card reader didn't need any tweaks or fixes like some posted here in forum.

    USB 3.0 doesn't seem to work at all (at least not out of the box), not even with USB 1.1/2.0 devices - I see that there's even a separate driver for Windows OS, so even here the port is not supported as standard.

    As for the Bluetooth, it has to be enabled in Windows in order to work under Ubuntu - I'm talking about the software switch.

    Otherwise I am very happy the way Lenovo G series works with Ubuntu.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1. Ubuntu 9.10
    2. HP (Compaq)
    3. Presario V2000

    1. Ubuntu 10.04
    2. Dell
    3. Latitude D610

    Both worked fine, the only issue was that I had to add wireless drivers, and to download them I needed wired connection which I didn't have at a time.
