    Ubuntu 11.04
    HP - Hewlett Packard
    DV2000 - DV2750EA

    11.04 works without any issues as far as I am aware, used daily. Battery life is much less than HP quotes for Vista. Worth a specific mention are suspend (though I don't use it), media buttons and HP remote control all work. HP port expansion and Firewire port are untested.

    1. 11.04 64 bit
    2. Dell
    3. Latitude E6400

    Everything works perfectly out of the box. Bluetooth and volume work great!

    Replaced stock WD hard drive (started going out) with OCZ Agility 2 160HD last night and moved it over. Took a total of 30 minutes to unpack and have it booting from the migrated install off the SSD

    1. 11.04
    2. Toshiba
    3. NB 505

    Works pretty well. Battery life seems a bit shorter on Ubuntu than estimates on Win 7 starter. Dual booting, Fn keys work, wireless works, touchpad,etc. Win key brings up dash. Haven't tested built-in camera. Speakers work, and Fn mute and unmute keys work. That's all I can think of to report so far.

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    HP Probook 4230s
    Fresh install of Lubuntu 11.04
    kernel updated 2.6.38-8

    out-of-the-box support for the following:
    1. resolution - 1280 x 800 (the highest resolution I got for Ubuntu 10.04 LTS was 1024 x 768, similar to Centos 6)
    2. wifi

    doesn't support:
    1. bluetooth
    2. fingerprint reader

    half-supported:
    1. touchpad scroll works, but not complete gestures

    Re: Laptop COMPATABILITY List.

    Ubuntu 10.10 / 11.04

    Laptop: MSI GX660R

    Compatibility: Installs and runs fine, but sound only plays through headphones or the subwoofer (partial fix below). MSI fan boost button works, but Eco power profiles do not. Also, in-built lights to not work. The last two are not Ubuntu issues, however, they simply arise from an absence of the MSI system control application which only runs on Windows.
    Screen brightness control also does not work - there is a delay of several minutes before changes made using keyboard buttons take effect, though it will dim when on battery and relight when plugged in.

    Sort-of-fix for the sound issue is contained in this thread, as well as a discussion on how to perhaps enhance it. Its limitations are also defined there. http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1800700 Add the text contained in the code box to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (you will have to run gedit as root - alt+f2 then gksu gedit )
