Works fine with my Acer Aspire 5670, except haven't tried too hard to get built in webcam working. Just not important to me I guess. Sorry, it came preloaded with WinXP. Doing my best to become un-assimilated.

:P
Got my Asus laptop A8Js today - booted right off the 3.2 dvd without need for any tweaks. No sound yet, though, but I am confident I will be able to fix that.

Acer Aspire 5002 64 bit Turion - Sabayon 32 bit working very well. Broadcom wireless worked using installed drivers. DVD plays, Multimedia all seems to work. Lots of included software to work with. This is the easiest linux distro I have used to date!

I've installed 3.2 on my Toshiba Satelite U205-S5044, although I recompiled the kernel with 2.6.19-gentoo-r2 to install ntfs3g and get the wifi working.

Hmmm...seems the poll is closed, however, I'm running 32bit Sabayon 3.2 fine on a HP Pavillion ZV5000.

System specs:

HP Pavillion model ZV5000
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
Ram = 1.2GB
Video = NVIDIA GeForce4 Go 64M/AGP/SSE2/3DNOW!
chipset = nVidia nForce3
sound = nVidia nForce3
ethernet = Realtek RTL-8139/C/C+
wireless = Broadcom BCM 4306
wireless subsystem = HP NX9500

I am very happy with Sabayon's performance on this machine. I have had many problems getting correct screen resolutions for this widescreen LCD with other distros. Sabayon worked great with the Nvidia drivers right out of the box. Even with only 64MB video memory, Beryl runs well and has been quite stable. My wireless worked with almost no tweakage at all, which is a first for me in the almost 2 years I have owned this machine. A big thumbs up to the Sabayon folks for a job well done!!
