http://ubuntuforums.org – Picked this laptop up recently and installed Ubuntu LTS 12.04.1 and it works brilliant right out of the box. No issues, sound, wireless, webcam, bluetooth all works and works well. Laptop runs the same temp as it did in Windows but far more snappier. Added x-swat ppa for latest Intel driver. If you are looking for metal body high performance i5 laptop, this is one great and affordable option that works well with Ubuntu. HDMI with intel VAAPI and VLC is quite good and tear free, looks like 2nd gen Sandy Bridge has weeded out all the initial issues with graphics and now works well. Unless yo (Hardware)
