Some versions of the TravelMate 7720 come with a ATI graphics chip. This model does not have one so it wasn't tested.
The microphone input does not seem to work at the moment. Hopefully a future ALSA update will fix this problem.
The Acer TravelMate 7720 was quite an easy laptop to Linux on, all the hardware was automatically detected and installed. Version for this laptop with a ATI graphics controller may be a little more difficult.
