  Intel Core i5 (isn't listed)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20
MB is a H81M-E

Coreldraw v11 works well in WINE.
Sitespinner Pro works well provided some DLL's are installed using Winetricks.

The best USB WiFi I have found, works out of the box, is TP-Link TL-WN722N (150Mbps).

OS is 32 bit Cinnamon (Mint17)

With a Transcend 128 Gb SSD the OS loads with everything ready to go in 20 seconds. Makes me happy.
With all the software/programmes on that drive only 11% is used so far.

Storage is on a SATA 500Gb drive.
It's a great system and Softmaker (free) Office Suite is plain magic imo, better than MS (joke) and even has the edge on Libre for me..

Printers, MP272, LB3300, Pixma 6525 all easily found/working ok.

What doesn't work:

The much advertised ASUS USB N13 connected ok and stayed connected. But after a few minutes downloads slowed and stopped. Connection seemed valid but no download. Same each re-boot. Maybe it's temperature related, 'might do some tests. ASUS - nil reply.

The 64 bit Mint version gave me trouble with Skype, no problem 32 bit.
It doesn't seem any slower than 64bit. Not an issue.


The MS ttf core fonts install are required for browser text compatibility.

Additional notes:

I'm a relative newbie on Linux but will never go back now!!
