    I have run Fedora on 2 laptops, so I'll list both.

    My current laptop:
    Model: Toshiba Satellite 2455-S3001
    Videocard: nVidia GeForce 4 420 Go; Livna's nVidia driver works after disabling the external monitor and TV out in xorg.conf with Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "CRT,TV"
    Ethernet: Realtek 8139; works out of the box
    Wifi: Came with an Agere Hermes 802.11b card that worked out-of-the-box with the hermes and orinoco modules.
    Upgraded to the Atheros 802.11a/b/g minipci card from my previous laptop; works with the Livna driver
    Bluetooth: I don't have any Bluetooth equipment to test this with. Linux's Bluetooth software says I have it, though.
    Touchpad: Synaptics, needs Option "SHMConfig" in its section in the xorg.conf file to enable gsynaptics/ksynaptics/qsynaptics
    Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): With FnFx and the Toshiba ACPI driver, the Fn+key shortcuts work perfectly and are fully programmable. The play, stop, fast forward, and rewind buttons on the front work if they are enabled by the hardware (by holding MODE on the front for 5 seconds until the light comes on) (I think this is to prevent hitting them accidentally)
    Display: Brightness controls work with the toshiba-acpi kernel module loaded
    OS: Fedora all the way! NO OTHER OSes!! I don't need Windows at all.
    Kernel: The one included with Fedora
    Suspend on Disk: I can't get it to work!
    Suspend on RAM: Works very well--sometimes resetting the display with Ctrl+Alt+F1 and then Ctrl+Alt+F7 is required, though, due to bugs in the nVidia driver.
    Comments: Everything works well on this laptop except the SD card reader. From what I've read, lspci -n says it's SDHCI.

    My now-broken laptop:
    Model: Toshiba Satellite A65-S126
    Videocard: ATI Mobility Radeon 7000; worked out-of-the-box with hardware OpenGL using the open-source drivers included with the kernel and Xorg 6.x/7.x
    Network: Realtek 8139, works out of the box
    Wifi: Atheros 802.11a/b/g, worked with the Livna driver
    Bluetooth: Not supported by the hardware
    Touchpad: Synaptics, needs Option "SHMConfig" in its section in the xorg.conf file to enable gsynaptics/ksynaptics/qsynaptics
    Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...): Didn't work at all!
    Display: I couldn't even change the screen brightness without going into the BIOS setup routine on boot!
    OS: Fedora all the way! NO OTHER OSes!! I don't need Windows at all.
    Kernel: The one included with Fedora
    Suspend on Disk: Didn't work at all
    Suspend on RAM: Suspend to RAM just froze the computer on resume.
    Comments: Decent machine, a few quirks, but still decent nonetheless. From what I've read from Windows users' reviews of this machine, I got much better performance out of it than they did.

    It broke because I had CompUSA fix the volume dial--not only did they not fix it, but it came back with broken hinges, and they made me sign an agreement not to sue them if they broke it worse before I could even SEE the laptop! I had to use a chain, brass rods, brass hinges, and lots of tape to keep the thing together after that, and it finally gave up in October, 10 months after they broke the hinges.

    Model: Toshiba Satellite M40-265
    Videocard: Mobile 915GM/PM Express PCI Express [controls:] ATI Radeon Mobility X700 (PCIE)
    Network: Marvell 88E8036 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller
    Wifi: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection
    Bluetooth: no (external usb-adapter works flawlessly)
    Webcam: no
    Touchpad: (SynPS/2) Synaptics TouchPad
    Hotkeys: 6 (left from keyboard) + fn-keys
    Display: 1280x800
    OS: Fedora Core 6 (+ preinstalled WinXp SP2)
    Kernel: 2.6.18-1.2868.fc6 (32bit)
    Suspend on Disk: sometimes (issues with certain kernels and x700 drivers)
    Suspend on RAM: sometimes (issues with certain kernels and x700 drivers)
    Comments:
    - at installation time, no graphics driver (neither ati, nor vesa) will detect the lcd display so it stays blank, tried attaching an external monitor and then it would work. consequence: text-mode install
    - xorg-ati drivers and aiglx trigger a nice crash after a few minutes (harddisk journal check tells something like "write time lies in the future" which may or may not be the reason for this), fglrx is the only way to go for now
    - kernel-param: combined_mode=libata needed or cd/dvd-drive will not use dma (and be damn slow)
    - kernel-param: pci=assign-busses needed, or latest 2.6.18 will put a lot of (especially acpi) errors, warnings, etc.
    - robustness and transfer-rates of sky2 network driver (for the marvell chip) are not so great
    - the six hotkeys have never ever been working, fn-keys are a nogo, fnfxd will output at start something like this:
    FnFX Daemon v0.3 (c) 2003, 2004 Timo Hoenig <thoenig@nouse.net>

    fatal error: Could open /proc/acpi/toshiba/keys.

    Please make sure that your kernel has enabled the Toshiba option in the ACPI section.
    For more information read the documentation and/or http://fnfx.sf.net/index.php?section=doc#kernel.
    there are some more minor problems, but all in all this laptop works quite well with fedora core 6 considering the fact that it has a "designed for windows xp" sticker

    Bluetooth: no
    Webcam: no
    Touchpad: (SynPS/2) Synaptics TouchPad
    Hotkeys: 14 fn-keys
    Display: 1280x800
    OS: Fedora Core 6 x86_64
    Kernel: 2.6.18-1.2868.fc6 (64bit)
    Suspend on Disk: working
    Suspend on RAM: working
    Comments: need to pass the all-generic-ide parameter to boot line in order to allow the kernel to find the hard-disk, due to a bug in the SB600 contoller already solved in kernel-dev (2.6.20). Wireless is not recognised by the bcm43xx driver, must use ndiswrapper with the Dell-provided WXP64 drivers, working flawlessly, with even led and fn-key working. Video card is 2D only with the radeon driver, fglrx enables direct rendering, but it's sluggish and Xv crashes. Kernel log spits out a lot of APIC errors on cpu1, ACPI seems to be working well anyway. Audio working out of the box, modem not seen.

    Pretty new hardware, need to wait some kernel releases for better support...

    Videocard:Nvidia GeForce Go 6150. Livna nvidia drivers working. Compiz + AIGLX Works.
    Network:Nvidia ethernet working
    Wifi:Broadcom mini-pci Express 1390 (apparently uses 4311 firmware) NOT working although claims to work with patched test kernel. Bug report here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla....cgi?id=213556

    Bluetooth:N/A
    Webcam: Ricoh Co Ltd xD-Picture Card Controller NOT working, although they are working on it. http://linux-uvc.berlios.de/

    Touchpad: Working. Scroll working.
    Hotkey (Home, Eject, Suspend ...):All keys and shortcuts working. Including "QuickPlay" keys. Mini remote control also works.

    OS:FC6
    Kernel:2.6.18-1.2868 SMP
    Suspend on Disk:Working

    Comments:This laptop is working great other than the Broadcom wireless. Apparently someone HAS made it work although I have had no luck. It is due to the stock kernels not providing mini-pci express support.

    *[FIXED] Headphones not working when plugged in/Headphone jack not recognized
