1)Version Of Ubuntu - 14.04 LTS
2)Laptop Maker - Dell
3)Laptop Model - Studio 1558
Note: there is a bug in this system's EFI. In order for it to install I had to make the hard drive MBR and made a BTRFS partition. It was a good work-around for me so try it.
All the following have worked perfectly with Ubuntu 14.04
-Acer Travelmate 8471:- Intel Core 2 Duo SU9400
-Meenee MNW737 :- Intel Atom N570
-Samsung N130 :- Intel Atom N270
-Acer B113 :- i3-2377M
Acer Aspire V7 582p
When installing you must:
Change from UEFI to Legacy
Choos USB as first boot option
F10 save and exit
Otherwise my screen did not work.
Everything else works.
I installed Ubuntu on the 24GB SSD and re formatted the 500GB as a blank disk removing all partitions and windows.
I am going to replace the 24GB SSD with a 240GB SSD as Carsten has done and said it works.

Delivered with Ubunt 12.04 but I installed Xubuntu 14.04 over it.
Everything works perfectly without any tweaking (as you might expect) with two exceptions:
* The double-tap in the top left corner of the trackpad doesn't disable it.
* Fn-F12 doesn't toggle the wifi disable.
In my opinion, these are so trivial I haven't even looked for a fix.
The default is that the Fn keys do their "action" and fn-Fn does the normal program input (e.g. press fn-F11 to go full screen). This is an option in the BIOS.

No real problems - only faked myself out on a few, none of which are worth mentioning. The exception would be the networking settings. I am use to having both wired and wireless turned on together on laptops and not having problems, but with Ubuntu it wants one or other, not both. After doing the homework (I think I found the answer here in the forums - cannot remember), I turned off the wired network as I am not using it and now problem solved!!
Using Ubuntu has been a real pleasant experience so far - Thanks!!

Short report: installation a breeze. All things I tried work. Biggest concern is the ultra high resolution display with current graphical interfaces.
