    Toshiba Satellite A105-S4064 seems very happy with Ubuntu 10.04 (32-bit).

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Unfortunately this is a laptop incompatibility list.
    My main laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1764, Core i3 processor, ATI Radeon 4300 graphics, Dell Mini wireless card (uses a Broadcom chip). Ubuntu installs and runs OK, but neither the wireless card driver nor the ATI drivers work - the install crashes both in console and in the 'Additional drivers' thingie. I have 4 other laptops and two other desktops, all have the same trouble with the wireless card - two Toshiba, two Dell, two HP, one Gateway.

    I tried every 'solution' I found on forums, nothing works. So I'm afraid I'm stuck in Windows world, nowadays I only use Linux to get into computers that have corrupt Windows installs. I just try every new distro that comes my way in the hope this bug with the wireless cards is fixed, but I've been trying on dozens of computers since 1996, and I never found a wireless card that works. Regardless of the distro.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    I've been running 10.10 Maverick Meercat on my Compaq Presario C700 for about 3 months.

    It's mostly working just fine - even the wireless.

    It has hung up occasionally, but I've been able to shut down with ctrl-alt-delete to recover.

    I encountered a problem grub2, wherein upon startup it would give the message "Error: you must load the kernel first". This began happening after an automatic system update, but that may be a coincidence. Elsewhere in this forum I found a tip to run "sudo update-grub" and that solved the boot error problem.

    I'm a happy camper!

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Incompatible laptop

    Dell xps15
    Ubuntu 10.10

    Nvidia drivers do not work, it crashes and all the 1ghz gpu is not usable.
    HDMI does not work
    mini display port does not work
    webcam does not work
    Some people have reported having issues with wireless card as well.

    most of the special keys work

    PS, if you can, avoid this computer if you really want to use ubuntu out of the box. Very disappointed!

    Dell E6510: overall good hardware support with Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

    Minor annoyance: ALPS touchpad is not recognized, but a patch has been released (haven't tried it though, going to wait for mainstream fix).

    Haven't tested the fingerprint scanner yet. External display port works with nvidia drivers (I have to teach classes now and then, so that's an absolute necessity).

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    1) 9.10
    2) Dell/Alienware
    3) m11x

    Works great, as always it needs wired connection to get drivers.
    Does not like switchable graphics.

    No other known faults.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Hello to all,

    First, I want to congratulate you for your everyday effort! Thank you! You are the best!

    VERSION OS: UBUNTU 10.10 NETBOOK/UBUNTU 10.10 DESKTOP
    LAPTOP MAKER: ACER
    MODEL: ACER ASPIRE 5741G (I5 430M CPU, 2.26GHz, 3Mb L3 cache, NVIDIA GeFORCE GT 320M- dedicated with 1GB RAM, 4GB RAM, WIRELESS Broadcom 802.11n, etc...)

    Problems:

    1. Wireless driver, (Broadcom 802.11n), not present. I try to download-it but it crashes at the final stage, displaying an error message, (I think the information is corrupted on your server, practically, it is impossible to download the file..). After several attempts, still the same result..

    2. NVIDIA GeFORCE GT 320M - driver, not present. Same problem as above.

    I tried to use REPORT PROBLEM utility, but also this one it crashes at nearly 95%, of overall completion.

    Please help! Thank you!
    Best regards,
    Radu

    Acer Aspire 5551-2036
    Running Ubuntu 10.10 for about 3 months now with fairly heavy use.

    WORKS
    Runs perfectly, all main keys and keyboard functions work fine (sleep, monitor output, touchpad on/off), no wifi issues.

    DON'T WORK
    The multi-touch touchpad feature do not work but they don't work in the pre-installed Win7 either.
    Having a problem connecting to Ubuntu One but I don't think is specific to this computer.

    I haven't tried the webcam.
