    Ubuntu 13.10
    Samsung Ativ 7 740U

    Everything Works.... (except the keyboard backlight which I could have sworn was working, but apparently is not. If anyone gets this working please contact me.....Thanks!)

    Installation notes (This is what I did. Other procedures may also work.):
    (Note: I installed over Windows 8 since I had no plans to ever use Windows.)
    - Insert a USB thumb drive with the Ubuntu installation into one of the USB slots on the right (2.0).
    - During powerup keep pressing the F10 button to get to the setup.
    - Goto the BIOS and change the Boot settings to CSM instead of UEFI.
    - While in the BIOS set the USB drive as the initial boot device.
    - Save the BIOS settings and reboot.

    That's it! The computer should boot into Ubuntu Live and be ready for full installation. Have fun!

    Update 12/15/2013 ::
    While I have not been able to get the keyboard backlight FN keys to work (they don't even register under showkey) I have discovered this command which will allow you to turn off the keyboard backlight:

    sudo su -c "echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/samsung/leds/samsung::kbd_backlight/brightness"

    Use the following to turn the keyboard backlight on:

    sudo su -c "echo 4 > /sys/devices/platform/samsung/leds/samsung::kbd_backlight/brightness"

    I've only done a quick test using a USB drive. It looks very promising. It boots up fine, touchscreen works, trackpad works, wireless works.

    To disable UEFI, press F2 on startup, then choose "Legacy BIOS" and change the boot order to list the USB drive first.

    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64bit

    Relatively new Swiss manufacture, seems to have been release since Sept 2013.

    I'm pretty stunned that I've searched this site and forum without finding a discussion on this. Totally omitted from the hardware list (any reason for this?)

    Ubuntu is pre-installed
    , spec and VFM looks good to me. Company seems to have an ethos of sustainability to boot.

    Spec enhancement by selection. Reviews seem excellent. What's not to like? Don't own one yet, so if anyone here has knowledge on these, I'd appreciate to see it.

    (1st post, so hello btw)

    Thumbs up Dell Studio 1535

    Dell Studio 1535 with Ubuntu 13.10

    13.10 works great with the stock setup pf 2 GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T5750@2 GHz, Intel 965GM Graphics. Only minor issue is when you are plugging the power cord back in it dims the screen. It does not dim when you pull out the cord and are running on battery, so it is almost like they have the function reversed. It should dim when you pull the cord and go on battery and brighten when you plug the cord back in. Using the brightness up key fixes the issue. Occasionally when the laptop has been in sleep mode for a couple of days it does not wake up, but very rarely.

    Did a clean one operating system install (after some cursing and swearing because my mssd is broken " not totally sure about this") i got this working installed with out a hickup and running smoothly.
    Wifi Bluetooth and wired networks are working right out of the box, graphics card to.

    Brightness control does not work, the FN keys for it do work i see the bar move but my screen does not dim.
    all the other FN keys work to.

    Current setup
    Intel Core i7 3630QM,
    8 GB RAM, 500GB Hybrid HDD, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M, Backlite Keyboard, Ubuntu 12.04LTS, Blu-ray Combo, 1x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0.
