Feedback on the Dell Precision M6800

Asked by Jorge Barrio

I was able to install Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, but there is any graphical driver which supports the Graphics board AMD FirePro™ M6100 w/2GB GDDR5.

In addition, I had serious problems to make the wifi work, which causes that the whole system crash.

I cannot understand why this laptop has an Ubuntu Certification when you cannot use a proper Graphic board with all their functionalities.

Very disappointed!!!!!

Jorge, I am sorry about your experience.

This system is only certified with the Pre-installed image, that the vendor, in this case, Dell, decides the markets that they want to sell the system with Ubuntu pre-installed.

Can you help with this problem?
