  Fujitsu-Siemens (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What doesn't work:

Using Mint 17 XFCE 32bit

1) Booting from USB-stick was not possible
2) WLAN / WiFi not working

What was done to make it work:

ad 1) Booting and Installation from DVD is ok
ad 2) Manual installation of WLAN/WiFi-driver (Windows-driver with ndiswrapper)
a) sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-dkms ndisgtk
b) start ndisgtk and select the *.inf file of your Windows-driver (for me it was PRISMA00.INF)

Additional notes:

suggest the following perfomance enhancements:
remove tumbler (sudo apt-get purge tumbler)
deactivate unnecessary startup applications
set screensaver on "black screen"
