    Lenovo B575e

    Ubuntu 12.10

    Bluetooth works
    WIFI works (Awesome reception!)

    Only thing that I found out not working was function key for touchpad. Otherwise brigthness control and sound control etc are working.

    CHEAP and GOOD laptop for basic Ubuntu usage!

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    I have just bought this one from

    Zoostorm 7877-0905 15.6-inch LCD Notebook without Operating System (Intel Core i3 2.4GHz, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 320GB HDD, Super-Multi ODD, Integrated HD Graphics)

    Everything I have tried works with Kubuntu 13.04 (I think the Realtek RTL8723AE wireless needs the 3.8 kernel unless you want to download drivers). Suspend /hibernate work well (although it's necessary to enable hibernation- why it's not enabled by default for a laptop puzzles me greatly!) The card reader works with SD cards (don't know about the others for which support is claimed but sd cards are all I have) and for the first time I'm able to control the brightness of the screen from the KDE battery monitor. All in all, a success.

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    1: Ubuntu 12.10 64-Bit

    2: Fujitsu

    3: Lifebook AH532 - i7 - 6GB RAM - 500GB HDD - GeForce 620M

    Works well!

    Nvidia Optimus works as it should!

    Only thing I don't have a solution for is the touchpad. Can't get 2-fingerscroll working. Well, I did but then the movement of the pointer was slow even at max. I think it's a Alps Touchpad.. If anybody knows, tell me

    And, this is a dualboot with Win8 (pre-installed), boots to the GRUB-menu and I can select Ubuntu -> Works great, Windows -> Stright to BIOS set-up, but thats not a problem for me. Btw, used the boot fixer in "Try Ubuntu"....

    EDIT: I got the touchpad working with Alps drivers for Dell laptops. Also needed to install "gpointing-device-settings" to set correct sensitive level. Because nothing happend when using the one in system-settings!

    Unhappy Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.


    I have a Dell Inspiron N4110, with ubuntu the laptop doesn't have any problem, except at the graphics, the ubuntu system doesn't recognize the graphic card. What I do to solve the problem?

    HP 6735s [compatible]

    1) Version: Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit
    2) Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard
    3) Model: HP 6735s

    Graphics: AMD ATI Radeon HD 3200
    Processor: AMD Turion™ X2 Ultra Dual Core Mobile ZM-82 × 2 @ 2.2-GHz (2-MB L2 cache, 35W)
    RAM: 2 GB + 1 GB upgrade
    System board: M780G
    Optical drive: DVD±RW SuperMulti Double-Layer Drive with LightScribe
    Hard drive: 160-GB, 5400-rpm

    - Overall performance: good and compatible
    - Wireless works after enabling the additional driver available in Software sources
    - Bluetooth works out of the box

    Minor issues:
    - Graphics unit works well in desktop with open source driver Gallium 0.4 on AMD RS780, gaming (3D rendering) performance is not that good. Updated proprietary drivers from AMD are not available. Transparency and blur effects give choppy experience.
    - Plugging in the ethernet somehow 'disables' the wireless card, any attempts made in order to connect to a wireless network fail after disconnecting the ethernet.
    - [While waking up from suspended state the fan might not work properly (happens also in Windows, seems to be a 'feature' of this laptop) ]

    12.04 on Dell Inspiron 17R. Everything seems to work except that the fan runs full speed - about 5800 rpm - all the time. Very noisy. I have followed countless threads offering possible solutions including on here without any success. I wouldn't advise buying one, I seriously wish I hadn't.

    1. version of ubuntu: 12.04, 12.10, 13.04
    2. Toshiba
    3. L755D-S5171

    AMD A6 3420m 1.5ghz quadcore
    almost works perfectly, all hardware works out of the box(wifi, sound, graphics), however, battery is not detected, but is still used, so no icon with aprox 4~ hours of batt life. brightness works till you install proprietary drivers. and only volume up/down/mute Fn keys work (no wifi or brightness)
