    IBM T41 (2373 -4WU) works flawlessly with Lucid Lynx 32-bit. Everything works right out of the box. I have two and tried on both machines.
    Interestingly, 10.10 does not work at all--I can't get it to install off of the various media devices I tried to use. Ditto both machines.

    HP Pavillion DM3 13 inch laptop with 10.10 (I chose 32 bit even tho' the AMD is 64 bit) works reasonably well except for issues with closing the laptop cover. In "suspend" at random times you can't come back and have to reboot. The screen stays black except for a frozen cursor. In Skype, the volume of the mic starts to decrease as you speak until it reaches zero! Then you have to push it back up to max.

    In 10.04.1 32 bit: need latest driver from unstable Alsa and Pulse Audio needs to be installed to get HDMI working. In addition, the internal audio needs to be turned off and the HDMI needs to be selected. Additional drivers utility needs to be run for proprietary drivers to be installed if you want to use Skype. ATI/AMD proprietary FGLRX graphics driver to be exact.

    1)Version Of Ubuntu - 10.10
    2)Laptop Maker - Acer
    3)Laptop Model - Aspire 4551G-N832G32

    Out of the box, I was getting an 'NTLDR is missing' at bootup. Clean install without doing anything special, everything works fine so far (except for a system crash problem with launching Mixx). Initially there was no sound, but after possibly an update and/or restart it worked fine. I didn't take any special measures to fix the problem.

    In short, plug 'n play - good to go!

    1) 10.10
    2) Dell
    3) XPS M1710

    Eveything works pretty much perfectly, except for some wierd graphics problems. But there are some workarounds which fix them.

    1) 10.04 LTS
    2) Sony Vaio
    3) SZ 23 GP

    Installed for a client (his Windows XP took 15~20 minutes to fully start...., now the laptop starts in less than 40 seconds). Worked out of the box for everything, except the internal Webcam, but I have already found a solution. Still need to try, will update this message with the result.

    Have some troubles with the brightness control, it does not work. Also, need to attempt some fix, and will update the message.

    Cheers,
    S.

    EDIT: Webcam fine ! Found the correct driver, packed in .deb and installed (Ricoh webcam, with WDM mode). For the brightness found a solution, but too risky as the kernel needed to recompile, so I have preferred not to do (anyway, is stuck at the maximum, which is fine).

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    I have a Toshiba satellite L350, Now installed 10.10
    Its worked pretty good before, except for some Alsa/sound issues.

    Now with 10.10 there is a problem with overheating. The fan speed wont adjust to cpu temp. Havent found a solution yet. Also issue with putting computer in "suspend". Now I can never come return. Always freezes up. I have to force reebot. This used to be my solution to increase fan speed (just suspend and log in agaion) but now suspend seems to freeze.

    Otherwise very happy with performance.

    Ubuntu 10.10 Dell Recovery remake of dvd works great on Dell 1735. I tried to make the Dell Recovery remake with a cd, but kept getting stuck in a boot loop.
