I tend to go through the example content, trying out each of the files
with their respective default programs, OpenOffice.org, Movie Player
(Totem) etc. I also open Firefox to test network connection and name
resolution. Maybe glxgears too, if there's a graphics card + free

There have been a few pages about testing in the wiki for a while now.
One aimed specifically at laptops, https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LaptopTesting
and another at ISO testing for alpha milestone releases,

Recently there seems to have been an re-organisation in the wiki to
promote more testing. Until I looked a few minutes ago, I didn't even
know there was a testing team https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing
