I have an old Toshiba Portege R705-P25 that works out of the box with
Wifi, ethernet, usb ports, sound, and hdmi ports work, although I have to
set the volume up with mixer at boot-up.
I have the following software working:
VirtualBox with Windows 7 Professional 32bit
I have not tried to install any of the large office suites or large
multimedia players (Banshee, Amarok, Rythmbox, etc)
When I have a computer with wifi compatibility issues, I prefer to use the
universal wifi adapters that attach to ethernet ports rather than usb ports.
Best of luck,
