The wireless nic I needed to use windows driver to make work.

The "windows key + E" open all work space.  * No BlueRay movie playback support. This is not a laptop-specific issue, but a copyright issue. This should be stated for those wanting to run solely Ubuntu on an Insprion 1525 with the BlueRay Combo Drive option.
 * The card reader only supports SD cards in Ubuntu. Again, this is not a laptop-specific issue. The card reader driver built into the Linux kernel only has SD capability.
