Update! The info I posted below is no longer accurate. Sadly, all but one distro installs on that thing and I will phase it out as soon as I can. It was a good laptop in its day.

MSI GT60-0NG

Anyone who uses this model should install the nvidia-390xx gfx drivers to get the most out of the K2000m gfx card as it will easily drive a 4K display.
To get the backlit keyboard back simply install the MSIKLM package from AUR.
In the terminal, issue: sudo msiklm green (or what ever color you fancy).

System76 Gazelle

Can’t remember if I had it installed on a Gateway NX860S. Only 32bit processor so choices became limited.
Over 12 years old and still a beast. It had run any distro I threw at it. 1.2 dual core and 2 gig of ram.
When I find the time I will install a 32bit OS on there to see how long it will live.

Acer 5315 (needs "video=SVIDEO-1:d" added to grub) Otherwise runs very well.
