This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Am using the same model because my girlfriend has the same one. Am using Ubuntu 11.04 100% RELEASE EDITION not BETA. It is working perfect so i highly recommend to install Ubuntu 11.04 which was released already. Do not update from Beta to Final Release just to avoid any problem, Just install it from scratch.

While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. – stephenmyall Aug 15 '12 at 14:12

@izx While it's not necessarily always wrong to comment with a link, link-only answers really aren't comments and shouldn't usually exist as comments. A comment cannot be expanded, edited to fix a broken link, or voted on. Instead, as Stephen Myall has said, this is an answer that would be much better if it included more information than just a link. Sometimes a link-only answer should be removed, but it would only make sense for it to be a comment if the linked page doesn't answer the question but is somehow still valuable. – Eliah Kagan Sep 3 '12 at 11:49
