Introduction

This is a guide to running Linux with the Dell Inspiron 7447 laptop. It is based on my experience with a dual boot install of Ubuntu Trusty Mate (14.04) LTS.

This guide is intended to provide you details on how well this laptop works with Linux and which modules you need to configure. For details on how to actually install and configure the required modules have a look at our guides section for distribution specific instructions.
