I seem to remember reading that a few Toshiba Laptops work well with 10.10. Anybody out there got any experience?

I recently configured a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5115 laptop (purchased at Office Depot I believe) for a friend with Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick 64-bit. I was able to straighten out the issues with wireless and audio, but I was never able to get the battery recognized. I summarized this here:

It seems like there are quite a few Toshiba laptops with ACPI issues. Apart from the battery/ACPI problem, the L655 works fine. I'm hoping either a future Toshiba BIOS update or linux kernel hack will fix the battery problem in the near future.

Hope this helps!
