  1. I have iso: android-x86-2.3-RC1-asus_laptop.iso currently installed on my HP TC4400 convertable tablet, P/N:en358uar#aba. This build seems to run very smooth. The only things that are not functional include:Pen/stylus input, SD card slot, PCMCIA(of course) Audio card, wireless service(due to lack of radio). Wireless networking works flawless. USB support for external mice and keyboards is very versatile, as well as usb storage media. All in all this build seems to be a good platform for many laptops. There of course needs to be a little tweeking with audio drivers and other media items. I would love pen input, sound and SD card support!!
