    I have two toshiba laptops a U205 and a M55. Both worked right out of the box with Ubuntu. I went to the toshiba website and looked at the u405 system specs and you should be fine. I have found that toshiba laptops work great with linux because of the intel chips which are used in them, are well supported.

    I have a Toshiba A100, which can be used with Ubuntu.

    There are a few of us here on the forums who use Toshiba laptops, so feel free to ask questions.

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite U405D-2852. I love it and everything works with the exception of both wired and wireless networking.

    Reason? The laptop features a wireless Atheros AR5007EG card and a Marvell Yukon 88E8040T ethernet controller both of which are unsupported in 8.04.

    Hope this changes in 8.10
