WeIl I've just tried latest version of UbuntuStudio 10.04 in my notebook...
...everything's just working out of the box, my internal monitor is recognized with 1366x768 resolution (bios mode:win7/vista) and as soon as i attached my external 1440x900 monitor it just worked and extended my desktop....amazing.... i will try to install new nvidia drivers just to see what they do...not before giving myself 1 day of graphic satisfactaction....
...so until i get support from nvidia or xorg xf86-video-intel will support intel ironlake chipset i think i will stick with linux (after 9 years...let's see if i can resist....too much stuff in "/etc")
I think we have similar notebooks. I've been struggling to get it working in FreeBSD 8.1/amd64 w/ all the latest ports and NVIDIA drivers -- no go.
W/c driver for your ubuntu did you use ? Intel or nvidia ? And would you be kind enuff to post your xorg.conf please?
