2.Acer Aspire 5733
1)Version Of Ubuntu: Precise 12.04 64 bit
2)Laptop Maker: HP
3)Laptop Model: Pavilion DV6-6c35dx with Beats Audio
Worked pretty much out of the box. Just had to install correct drivers for the wireless card which kept losing signal...I don't remember the exact model but its a Realtek.
Only problems I haven't solved yet is the fingerprint reader...this particular model not covered by the frprint fix...and the speakers...only the 2 rear speakers work, not the front 2.
Everything else is up and running and I couldn't be happier as this is my first Linux/Ubuntu machine and everything transitioned smoothly.
Version: Precise Pangolin 12.04 64-bit
Model: Pavilion DV4 T-1600
Everything works out of the box and near perfectly since i first installed Ubuntu 10.04. Speakers sound better, louder than they do on windows.
Never needed to install any driver for anything other than for HDMI. HDMI port requires configuration for which ubuntu automatically detects my nvidia graphics card and suggests drivers and updates.
I use wireless bluetooth headphones, they work fine, but occasionally i have to go to the sound settings and change the output device manually. Also, occasionally, for whatever reason the new sound output device gets automatically muted when connected and i have to unmute manually.
The media remote doesnt work, for obvious reasons. Only the volume keys work on the remote. If it could work, the laptop would make perfect machine for HTPC with XBMC installed..
1) Ubuntu 12.04 (KDE-Desktop)
3) MSI GT60R - i7815W7H (Model No. MS-16F3)
not working parts:
- NetworkCard Killer E2200, but got it working fine with:
- Keyboard backlight, what hurts me personaly, because it was a feature i was looking forward to ... and didn´t expect it to not work ... somthing "simple" like a backlight but right now there is no possibility to make it work). The keyboard is only usable with the windows software ( you can change the color of the backlight and bring some "Effects" to the keyboard) .... but there is no way to even just switch any light on with a key-shortcut (FN-Keys).
Asking MSI to help -> no Ubuntu Support - WE sell it with W7 - Ubuntu is your Problem, good day!

1) Ubuntu 12.04 LTS w/ 3.4 Kernel
3) Thinkpad T530 (dual core i7, Intel wireless, Intel graphics)
Well, after installing the 3.4 kernel and a few packages (for the Thinkpad specific keyboard shortcuts), I've got my installation working pretty much perfectly. All the function keys work, brightness control, keyboard volume keys, etc...
Only thing I haven't got working yet is the smartcard reader and fingerprint sensor - the smartcard reader should be doable but from what I've heard the driver for the fingerprint sensor hasn't been cracked yet...
I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my Acer Aspire 3690 and it works like smiles and sunshine on my face everytime I start up my computer. (ahum, laptop)
Really no problems till so far.
1) Ubuntu 12.04 Precise pangolin 64-bit
3) Aspire 5745G
there have been some minor problems with the touchpad, but they seem to be gone now, also, it should be noted that for the nVidia card to be properly working the graphics switching should be disabled in BIOS. (i have no idea whether Bumblebee works on this computer as i haven't bothered trying it)

3) Z930 [i5 cpu/6gb ram/128gb ssd]
Operating system runs very fast and responsive. Video/sound/wifi works out-of-the-box. Haven`t try bluetooth yet. Going to try mpeg4 video files in a day or two.About a week in use, two random freezes. Multi-touch gestures zoom in/out are not working (it`s a pity). Fingerprint reader too. Never the less, I have to conclude that Ubuntu team do their job in improving this distribution quite good.
So that`s my experience with this laptop under Ubuntu OS.
