 Haven'​t tested much, since the lack of Nvidia support forces me to return the laptop. ​ Haven'​t tested much, since the lack of Nvidia support forces me to return the laptop. ​
 Didn't even get to the installation screen on Ubuntu 9.10, so all tests were made using 10.4.1 LTS. Didn't even get to the installation screen on Ubuntu 9.10, so all tests were made using 10.4.1 LTS.
 +
 +Some minor bugs with 10.4: 
 +
 +  * The startup screen only appears for 1 second, right before the login screen. Before that there'​s only blinky the cursor. ​
 +  * The mute-button is generally recognized by the kernel, but doesn'​t do anything other than freeze the menu bar, forcing you to switch sessions or terminals
 +
 +Medium bugs/​annoyances: ​
 +
 +  * The fan speed stays at maximum after suspend to ram. Otherwise suspend works perfectly fine. 
 +  * The touchpad is not very sensitive, even when set at maximum sensitivity. ​
 +  * While Linux supports about 10 cpu speeds, it doesn'​t go below 41%. But since this issue hasn't been attacked for about 10 years, i doubt this will change any time soon
 +  * Integrated microphone, see Sound issue in the section above. ​
 +  * Brightness control now works with the Repository [[https://​launchpad.net/​~kamalmostafa/​+archive/​linux-test-i915bri|Mostafa'​s ppa]] for ubuntu
 +  * Ethernet on Ubuntu needs package (linux-backports-modules-wireless-lucid-generic worked for me)

-If it wasn't for the optimus issue, this would have probably been a great laptop. ​+If it wasn't for the optimus issue, this would have probably been a decent ​laptop.

 +Bottom line: If you wan't a well-functioning,​ smaller Laptop running Linux, look elsewhere
