    Talking Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    My L520 Dell notebook works perfectly well with Ubuntu 10.10!

    1. Version Of Ubuntu: 10.10, plus Macbuntu Theme.
    2. Laptop Maker: Dell
    3. Laptop Model: Latitude D520 w/ 2GB RAM (upgraded from factory default of 1GB.)

    I bought this laptop with Windows XP, which performed well (for a WinXP, of course) until the point it became slugish (as with every Windows.) Than I promptly reformated it for Ubuntu 10.10. It worked like a charm from the begining with everything - graphic card, audio, wireless.

    Ubuntu has given me a much more usable machine than it ever was, even when it was brand new. Ubuntu has given me at least double the value I've paid to have that quite decente (for MS) Windows.

    I am about to buy a new laptop, and I am considering having another Dell since it has a line of Ubuntu-compatible machines (which has the beneffit of not charging me the to-be-useless Windows license.)

    3)Laptop Model MD2614U

    I got this laptop used, so the issues that I am experiencing may or may not be related to the operating system.

    Laptop will not resume properly from Suspend/Hibernate modes. Full power-off and reboot is required to bring the system back up.

    FGLRX driver required for ATI video card 3D performance.

    All other features, including media keys and [Fn] keys work perfectly.
    All other problems I am experiencing (faulty bluetooth card, bad speakers) are hardware issues and in no way, shape, or form reflect deficiencies in Ubuntu or Linux.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu 11.10
    2)Laptop Maker DELL
    3)Laptop Model Inspiron 8600

    System specs:
    Intel Pentium M 1.50GHz processor
    2GB of RAM
    32MB Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 video card
    60GB hard drive.

    Overall Ubuntu runs like a charm! I installed using the Windows Installer (optical drive died ages ago...) and for a decade-old laptop it runs incredibly well! However, there are some dodgy parts, like when dragging windows around the screen they lag a bit and booting up is a bit slow as well... but once everything's up and running it works great! I had to mess with the video drivers a bit to get everything optimal of course, but with the Version-173 Post-Production updates driver everything's good!
    Thank you, Ubuntu!!!!

    I installed Ubuntu through a USB drive, the installer replaced the windows 7 OS and it installed with no problems.
    Turned the computer on and all the features work, the keyboard shortcuts, WiFi, USB ports etc.
    Couldn't be happier, thank you ubuntu for you awesome work!

    I just installed a new WiFi card in a Dell Inspiron 5150 laptop for a freind. Laptop never came with one, can you believe that? The card is an Intel B2200BG and worked out of the box, no needing to install driver or any tweaking at all, amazing. This is a great upgrade card.

    Unhappy Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    For Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

    Is a Toshiba satelite A135-S2276 compatible?

    I had issues with ubuntu 11 on this laptop and had to switch to fedora but I like Ubuntu better and I was hoping this version would be compatible.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Ubuntu 11.10
    Dell Inspiron N 4010

    Issues for Wifi with Broadcom.
    Fixable with additional drivers or the ndiswrapper.
    No support for Ad-Hoc.

    Everything else is perfect.
