Summary

You can enter a summary of how well the Acer Aspire TimelineX 5830T works with Linux here.

Not a hugely technical user I'm afraid, but this is what I have found:
I'm running Kubuntu 12.04LTS without any problems on this laptop. If you want to dual-boot, I found I did have to do the windows backup first and then use this to repair the MBR so that it would work properly - windows has odd partitions for recovery, so I'm not sure which menu item in the grub menu is the default, but they both seem to bring up Windows if you need them to. The screen brightness function keys have to be set up manually in the grub (can't remember how I did this, but I followed instructions and they worked). The other function keys all work except the switch to external screen button and the Scr Lk button, but you can set up shortcuts to do this so it's not a problem. It doesn't have an internal microphone, and I haven't tested the microphone or headphone jacks, but all the other items on the list above work fine. With the graphics, I don't do gaming, so wouldn't know how well it works for that, but I can use the GIMP without problems.

nice computer, big screen.. all works out of the box with ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. only thing causing problems is the build-in bluetooth, which cant be found by my s2.. brightness settings are also rather crude..
other than that, no problems.. http://www.pinayfashion.com/?p=9
