    With 10.04 my Toshiba l455 is perfect, except for fan control and function keys. Otherwise, I love it.
    Thanks for making this thread.

    Gateway ML6732 with 10.04 64bit runs pretty much perfectly, didn't notice anything wrong at all (except for the weak integrated intel graphics).

    1)Version Of Ubuntu: Lucid 10.04
    2)Laptop Maker: HP
    3)Laptop Model: Pavilion DV6-2153ee

    Installs smoothly. Needs wired internet at first to get the Nvidia and Wifi drivers installed via the Hardware Drivers tool.

    Not working:
    The fingerprint reader is a mystery.
    Sound is touch and go and plugging headphones in doesn't mute main speakers.
    I converted my whole office to Ubuntu.... and everyone loves me for it!

    1.Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

    2.Toshiba

    3.Satellite L305D-S5930

    Fan doesn't run when some programs that are CPU intensive like transcoding and Hulu Desktop (It works fine in a browser). Not sure how I had my 64-bit Ubuntu running before but now i have to use 32-bit applications for Adobe FlashPlayer. Many other models in the L305-L305D have the same fan problem, but disregarding that, Ubuntu runs smoothly and picks up the ATI 3100 video card drivers. And you have to compile some packages to get the Function keys working, I forgot how to get that after 9.10.

    Acer Aspire One D250 running Ubuntu Netbook 10.04.

    Internal mic and wireless drivers don't work out of box but both are fixable pretty easily.

    Only two settings for screen brightness (not sure if this is Ubuntu's fault or not though as it might just be a cheap laptop)
