    Another E330:
    OS: Ubuntu 14.04 64bit
    Manufacturer: Lenovo
    Model: Thinkpad Edge E330
    Specification: i5-3210M, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, GbE NIC, WiFi, Bluetooth, IGP, Camera, 13.3".

    For a working backlight control, it needs:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="thinkpad-acpi.brightness_enable=1 acpi.brightness_switch_enabled=0 quiet splash"

    Re: Laptop COMPATIBILITY List.

    Installed Lubuntu 13.10-desktop-i386 on my Toshiba Laptop Satellite 5000 with success. Still working on various things but here is what worked for me:
    Used the CD to boot. Set ‘nomodeset’ then continued on. Installed from the icon within the LiveCD. Later, to prevent ongoing problems with sleep mode I set the following:

    Preferences/power manager--> Xfce Power Manager -->On AC-->Monitorut display to sleep... Never; Switch off display... Never

    Preferences/Default Applications for LXSession/Settings (bottom button)/General Settings/Laptop mode --> yes
    Not sure which of these solved the problem it’s gone.

    A little slow, but sure beats the same machine with XP

    FYI: The Toshiba has: Intel Pentium III processor, 1.10 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, hard drive space 26.7 GB, Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce4 440 Go

    1.) Ubuntu 14.04
    2.) Samsung
    3.) Ativ Book 9 NP900X3G-K02
    4.) Hardware: pretty much everything works out of the box, besides fan-quiet mode and the internal microphone (see bug
    Intel Core i5-4200U, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD (mSATA), Intel HD 4400 IGP, Micro HDMI, 13.3" non-glare 1920x1080, USB 3.0, Intel 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, Webcam 1.3MP

    UEFI Secure Boot works, however need to disable Fastboot in BIOS so that USB stick is recognized.

    I installed Ubuntu 14.04 alongside Win8.1, following procedure required as installer does not recognize Windows partition:
    1.) in installer select "Something else"
    2.) Shrink the Windows partition (its the largest one)
    3.) create ext4 partition in freed space (mountpoint / )
    4.) installer should detect windows efi boot partition and uses it, no action required
    worked perfectly.

    When I replaced the 128GB mSATA SSD with an empty 512GB SSD and installed Ubuntu (in EFI mode), installation succeeded but UEFI did not recognize ubuntu ("All boot options are tried...") - played with efibootmgr, no success. So I installed Win8.1 again from recovery boot stick and went through the procedure above, worked. (switching secure boot OFF and OS mode to "CSR OS" also works of course if you can live without secure boot)

    Important tips for installation:
    1.) Create bootable Win8.1/Samsung recovery USB stick (min. 16 GB) from within windows. once done (and verified bootable) you can delete ALL partitions, everything needed to restore Win8.1 is on the stick.
    2.) If you want dualboot with Win8.1, you can still delete the last two partitions (13GB and 1GB) to free up some space (after step 1), they are only OEM recovery related, win8.1 will still operate normally.
    3.) before installing ubuntu, run samsung software updater from within windows to check for BIOS update. not possible from linux
    4.) Useful keys during boot process: F2-BIOS, F4-Samsung Recovery, F10-UEFI Boot Menu.

    -) Suspend works fine
    -) Hibernate works fine, IF you have manually created a large enough swap partition (the ubuntu installer does create a swap partition but uses it only during install, then leaves it unused, weird), and have not selected to encrypt your /home or whole drive. be aware that using hibernate a lot increases SSD wear.

    Imediately upon receipt of machine, swapped out 500 GB, 5400 RPM Windows 8 HD for 256 GB SSD. Booted to Xubuntu 14.04 LTS from thumb drive and installed. Never once booted to Windows.

    Upgraded Total system RAM to 12 GB

    Only issue was with wifi which was sorted in 30 seconds with this thread.

    Ubuntu GNOME 14.04 LTS / Ubuntu 13.10
    HP Elitebook 850 G1

    All hardware except fingerprint scanner, tpm, and wwan card tested and works great. My model does not have the dedicated graphics so graphics switching (intel/amd) has not been tested either. UEFI boot works good, just need to create a custom boot entry pointing to the ubuntu efi image. I also have a docking station and 27" display at my desk which has worked decent with ubuntu as well. Sometimes the external display isn't properly detected when the machine is docked but turning the display on and off fixes it.

    AMD Turion II Dual-Core M520 (2.3GHz)
    4GB DDR2
    ATI Radeon HD 4200

    graphics are a little messed up, but its tolerable
    also runs a little slow an freezes up on occasion
    only complaint is lack of legacy support for this harware
