I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a HP EliteBook Folio 9470m using Ubuntu.com's help guidelines, “Installation/FromUSBStickQuick” (see: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/FromUSBStickQuick). Installation was hands off with no issues for the fresh install (wiping Windows 7). Upon installation, all primary functions, i.e graphics, ports (USB, headphones, monitor, etc.), networking (wifi & ethernet), trackpad/mouse, etc. worked properly (have not, and probably never will, test the Smart Card reader).
As I was migrating from another machine, I transfered all data and packages with great success. My experience is documented here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2188106
