  HP Compaq (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Live CD OEM edition and install, wireless networking, power management.

What doesn't work:

Can't download any software with the Synaptic package mananger. Some servers seem to be offline.

Included remastering program never produced a useable ISO image.

What was done to make it work:

To install additional software I download it with Mint 9 or 10, put it on a CD-R and then install on other Mints.

Additional notes:

Intel 915gm chipset with integrated graphics, mechanical lid switch.
