I had Ubuntu 13.04 installed on the drive already and after popping in the drive everything booted perfectly. The screen appears to work just fine (though I have noticed the occasional flicker). All in all, I think it was a good deal! I'm planning on using this laptop as an "extra" for the monthly Coder Dojo I co-organize. Not all kids coming to Coder Dojo have their own computers so occasionally we have to lend them our personal computers to use. Now I can enable 1 more kid to participate by providing them with this laptop!
As a side note, another successful, problem free install of OS!
