  Dell (Laptop or Netbook)
  LMDE
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

LCD 1680*1050
CPU Intel Core2Due T7500 @2.2GHz @2.2GHz
RAM 4GB 800MHz <- added later
GPU Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M, QUDA enabled
HDD 500GB WD @5400rpm <- added later
8 Cells Battery <- added later
CD/DVD RW <- Only reads no write

What doesn't work:

I can't hibernate in LMDE! After resuming from hibernation actually it restarts!

What was done to make it work:

Its wireless card is a Dell card but has Broadcom chipsets.
Broadcom-based wifi cards don't work using STA driver in LMDE and I had to install and setup b43 driver and add it to initmod settings.
The default GPU driver is also open-source nouveau driver which must be replaced with proprietary nvidia-glx driver for better performance and enabling CUDA abilities.
