Review of Linux Compatibility

The Acer TravelMate 5742Z-P6624G60Mns has a 15,6 inch (39,6 cm) anti glare display and a Intel Pentium P6200 processor (2.13 GHz, 3MB). The laptop is equipped with 4GB RAM and a 500GB harddisk. The graphic chipset bases is the Intel HD 3000.

The laptop is shipped with pre-instaled Linpus Linux, but can also be used with Ubuntu.

WiFi, integrated webcam and integrated SD card reader do not need any configuration under under Ubuntu 12.04 (Linux kernel 3.2.0-30-generic-pae) but instead work out-of-the-box.
