    Acer Aspire 5517

    I have an opportunity to get an Acer Aspire 5517 for only $300 and I'd like to put Ubuntu on it. Does anyone know if this works with Ubuntu? All I could find was that the wireless is problematic.

    Wireless network is not a problem anymore. Using ubuntu 10.04 beta, and it detected the "Broadcom STA wireless card driver" which is working great.

    Surprisingly inbuilt webcam is given but no microphone!!!

    External mic is not working. And till now despite extensive search, couldn't find a solution to get it worked.
