    Thinkpad T22 (older model - Pentium III 900Mhz 512MB Ram)

    Ubuntu 11.10 runs a bit slow.
    Lubuntu 11.10 runs fast.
    Dual boot between the two versions.

    It all works fine. Printers, scanners, camera, Wifi card, etc. No problem. Had to change smb.conf to connect to access Windows shared drives on the network. Installed Samba and winbind.

    Laptop: Acer travelmate 2600
    Linux version: xubuntu 11.10

    Had some little problems with wi-fi setup, but i'm a noob and it really was no great problem in the end. Just needed to download correct firmware for the embedded wifi card.

    Seems just a bit slow compared to other lighter distros i used (puppy linux and mint lxde) but my laptop has only 512mb ram.

    Everything works out of the box, the only thing I did was to enable proprietary drivers for graphics.

    Lenovo ThinkPad X120e

    Xubuntu 11.10-amd64

    The only thing that doesn't work is hibernation when using AMD's proprietary Catalyst video drivers. When using the open source drivers, hibernation works but there is no 3D support. Everything else works well.


    EDIT:

    After using it for a while I found some tweaks and links to help improve this very nice laptop.


    Ubuntu Community Documentation (short but useful)
    for the X120e.

    ThinkWiki is a wiki dedicated to ThinkPads running Linux-based OSes. It includes an entry for the X120e.

    ThinkPad Forums


    Thinkpads have an accelerometer that senses if the laptop is dropped and makes the hard drive brace for impact. To enable this, install the tp-smapi-dkms and hdapsd packages. Then load the tp-smapi kernel module

    Code:
    sudo modprobe tp-smapi
    Then restart hdapsd

    Code:
    sudo invoke-rc.d hdapsd restart
