I have Pardus installed on my Olidata Stainer W2800. Everything worked out-of-the-box, including the WiFi (after I switched it on...).
I'm very happy with it.

I'm currently using an HP Pavilion dv8000.  It worked right out of the box.  Very happy with it.  Thanks for the great wireless support!

Well, I had some issues with my dv8000.  Sad  But aside from the cardbus not working, it worked fine.  I now have a dv2000 and except the webcam, everything works!  Even the cardbus.  Oh, this is with 2007.2.  Willem, did you decide on which kind of laptop?

My  Toshiba Satellite L 10 1.6 Ghz Centrino , with 512Mb ram  & 82852/855GM Integrated garphics card ( which is about 3  years old now ) works fine with 2007.2.

I can even use Compiz - Fusion without any major problems.I like it because it's a nice way to show my friends what linux can do with some basic hardware. Cheesy

I'm using Dell Inspiron 6000 notebook with intel graphics card. It works perfectly with Pardus. I mean really perfect! all features work...
PS: You need to edit xorg.conf to have a mouse wheel on touchpad. And multimedia keys can be used with the help of a program called "lineak". Btw, You may like these web sites: http://www.linux-laptop.net/ http://tuxmobil.org/

I tested the 2007.3 live CD on my (XP) Inspirion 6000, and can re-confirm it works without problems. Wireless card internet connection setup was easy, just had to enter the WPA key and I was on the way...

BTW all-in-all this topic already mentions an impressive range of laptop brands that work with Pardus without noticable problems, cheers Pardus developers!

My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4280, 9 years old, with 312 MB ram, a Pentium III with 497 MHz! My graphica card is of the same age, with no extra memory. So a very old computer, and I have to say that Pardus 2007.3 is running very smoothly!

Keep up the good job! I hope and expect that Pardus 2008 will still sustain these requirements.

Works not with Linux (general):
 - Integrated Ricoh Card Reader
   I solved this Problem by using an external USB Card Reader Drive (looks like an USB memory stick ...)

Hey Linux Fanatic
I am thinking of buying the HP DV 6820, http://www.laskys.com/pcs_and_laptops/laptops_and_pdas/laptops/hp_dv6820.html?cm_mmc=Dealtime-_-Pcs_And_Laptops-_-Laptops-_-447390_HP_DV6820&engine=dealtime&keyword=HP+DV6820#specification
It looks pretty much like the one you have! What do you think?

Hi azra,

HP Pavilion dv6820 is very similar to dv6650eg. I Think Pardus will work on it too, like my one.

My sister is using dv6010ea, where Pardus 2007.3 supports 100% the hardware of this laptop, but on my laptop Pardus does not support all. ACPI Buttons (the blue multimedia keys -> HP QuickPlay Keys between display and keyboard) and currently brightness control on Pardus 2007.3:
http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=1668.0

In the german PCLinuxOS Forum a member of our Core Team solved this problem on his Acer Laptop by some modifications and shell scripts ...
http://www.pclinuxos.de/smf/index.php?topic=1554.0

So I think it should be possible on HP Laptops too. I'm going to try the same method on my laptop with Pardus. If it does, than I'll let you know about that.

I hope that theses problems will be solved in Pardus 2008 - I love Pardus Linux (and of course honey PCLinuxOS)  Roll Eyes


Enjoy your new Laptop  Grin



With best regards

Pardus 2008 (.1) works great on an acer aspire 5315 low budget laptop.

Wifi is also working without problems here.

I'd personally reccomend the Dell Vostro range, its aimed at small businesses, and whilst it has a cheap base cost it can be heavily customized.

15.4" @ 319 Euros (default > can be upgraded):
Processor: 2 GHz Intel Celeron
LCD: Widescreen WXGA 1280*800
RAM: 1 GiB (Dual Channel)
Hard Drive: 80 GiB @ 5400 RPM SATA
Graphics Card: IntelJ GMA X3100 (upgradable to NVIDIA 256 MiB 8400GS for 70 Euros)
http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/category.aspx/vostronb?c=nl&l=en&s=bsd
(Comes with Vista Home Basic pre-installed, which can be resold at a profit...)

The wireless/graphics work perfectly.

The following are my own screenshots of my Vostro 1500 with Pardus 2008.1 installed.
