Most stuff works just perfectly. Headphone jack and microphones don't work yet. It sometimes doesn't waked up if the BIOS puts it into powersave mode, and there's something wrong with the flash plugin for firefox that often causes the browser to hang. Other than that it's pretty stable and fast, with only minimal driver configuration.

Although this laptop is a few (2) years old, it works excellent. I have yet to configure the widescreen lcd correctly, and the touchpad mouse is SLOOOOOOOW (despite the usual tweaks in the config GUI), which I attribute to my stupidity, not the distros. I am sure that I will have these issues resolved in no time flat.

Hello, i happy to report that the asus M5N is almost fully supported by sabayon linux. Sound works grate, wireless, dvd/cd burning, firewire, aiglx and xgl are also supported on this little laptop. Suspend to ram works, Suspend to disk does not yet work. We are waiting for a better implantation from kpowersave.

Sabayon works perfectly on this computer.

OK, so after almost 2 weeks of using SL, it's finally time to say that - it just works! :D

Pentium M 1.6, ATI X600, Intel 2200BG Card.

Everything out of the box :-)

out of curiosity i tried the live dvd out on my girl's laptop (3.2)

inspiron 1150
2.8ghz celeron
20gb hdd
512mb ddr2
intel crap graphics
15" 1024x768 screen

everything appeared to be working at first, untill i enabled aiglx (i know, stupid for that machine, but i was curious) and i got a HUGE grey volume control screen that was apparently constantly being pressed down.

as far as i know, there are no external volume buttons on this thing. I had to pull the battery to get it to shut down - machine was hard locked.
I havent tried a knoppix or ubuntu disk yet .... havent had time to mess about with it.

Perfect with 3.2, wireless works, fast no drivers to setup.

5 star....
No working graphics in Acer Aspire model 5102. Left black mouse trails anytime you moved mouse and no links worked. Eventually whole screen goes black or gray.

Get something with an NVidia video system and at least 128megs and you won't go too far wrong.

I had reliability issues with a Fujitsu recently. I wouldn't recommend them or Toshiba.

Asus and Acer tend to be very good deals. HP does OK of late. But focus on the video chipset for best results...everything else can be tweaked one way or the other.
