Ubuntu 12.04 on a high-end laptop

After rather successfully reviewing Precise Pangolin on my T61 with SSD, I decided to expand the testing to other machines I have. Most importantly, I wanted to see how well this latest LTS edition of Ubuntu behaves on my higher-end laptops, blessed with an Nvidia card. So I took it for a spin on my LG machine.

In today's terms, you might call the three-year old laptop somewhat old, but it still comes with a proper 64-bit processor, it has 4GB of RAM, which is quite decent, and there's the Nvidia 9600M GS, which still runs most Linux games quite well. All right, let's see how I fared.
