-===== Summary ===== 
-The HP Envy 13 is not fully ready to be used with Linux nowadays: 
-* This laptop provides "​switchable graphics"​ but this feature is not supported by mainstream distributions like Ubuntu 10.10 or Fedora 13. Only the Intel integrated graphic card can be used by default, while the discrete ATI graphic card still consumes power. More information about switchable graphics here: [[http://​linux-hybrid-graphics.blogspot.com/​]]. Fortunately the discrete graphic card(ATI Radeon 4300 series) can be switched off by ACPI method to lower the system temperature : [[http://​ubuntuforums.org/​showthread.php?​t=1242590&​page=2]]. ​ 
-* This laptop provides a Synaptics ClickPad ([[http://​www.synaptics.com/​solutions/​products/​clickpad]]). This new kind of touchpad is not supported by current drivers and prevent you from left or right clicking. You can only "​tap"​. More information about possible workarounds here: [[http://​georgia.ubuntuforums.org/​showthread.php?​t=1388164&​highlight=clickpad&​page=2]].
