Notes

Graphics

The standard graphic controller for the HP Pavilion dv2700t is the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100. This is supported by all up to date Linux distributions.

Other versions of the dv2700t come with the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M which will require the proprietary NVIDIA module to function fully.

Wireless

The Intel based wireless controller works just fine with this laptop. The dv2700t may also be ordered with a non-Intel wireless controller. No information is available about this (probably Broadcom based) option and should be avoided.

Summary

The HP Pavilion dv2700t is an great choice for Linux. All the included hardware works perfectly with minimal configuration work required.
