I'm looking at using Alienware laptop (MJ-12_m5700i) w/ 17 WideXGA 1280x800 LCD display. Alienware doesn't offer any linux support. I was wondering if anyone has used alienware w/ linux and can offer any feedback?
Yes, I'm using the driver on a bunch of HP tablets and the driver distributed with Ubuntu works great, instructions are here:

I also use the driver on an old gateway laptop and I had to make some special configuration changes in order to get things to work, check the readme file if you're still having problems.
