|Processor||Partial||There are still a few ACPI errors with current Linux distributions|

|Graphics||Partial||No 3D support at the moment and the display can become corrupted from time to time|
This laptop was tested with Fedora 12, and Debian squeeze and sid.
Future releases of the Linux kernel should fix the ACPI issues and a new version of the ATI drivers should support the graphics card as well. However for the moment the HP Envy 15 is a tricky laptop to use with Linux.
