Installed and have been using laptop with Ubuntu 9.04. All hardware is working correctly with no adjustments or workarounds (modem-untested, suspend/hybernate-untested, S-Video-untested). I also tested with Ubuntu 9.10 and xorg, keyboard, and touchpad didn't work. I tested with Ubuntu 10.04 and all hardware is working correctly with no adjustments or workarounds (modem-untested, suspend/hybernate-untested, S-Video-untested).
