Toshiba Satellite C660-A049 (Part number PSC1SV)

Introduction

A Toshiba Laptop that doesn't come with an OS, and is very Linux-friendly.
Tested it with ubuntu-10.04 (which came out before the laptop was even made, and it worked flawlessly (graphic/LAN/WAN/touchpad + scrolling pad), I've also tested it with:

  1. openSUSE-11.4-GNOME LiveCD 32-bit (worked except for one little thing, the trackpad can be used for moving the mouse arrow, but not to click on things, everything else works).
  2. Linux Mint 13 Mate live DVD 32-bit (same as OpenSUSE with the clicking thing, otherwise everything else works)
  3. Ubuntu-10.04 and Xubuntu-12.04 desktop 32-bit (works flawlessly out of the box).
