It doesn't look that bad to me.

I notice you mention Ubuntu in the body of your post, Mandriva in your profile, and OpenSolaris in your sig. Which did you install?

As well as the linux on laptops page, Ubuntu also has a laptop testing page with a big list of the things they'd like tested.

Lenovo N500 update

I finally settled on Debian Lenny, but before i did the final installation i replaced the hared drive with a 500gb western digital Caviar Blue. So the fuuly correct system specifications are as follows.
