  Dell (17.3" Laptop With Core I5)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

All works well. Laptop now has a new life and is usable again.

What doesn't work:

Cinnamon occasionally locks up - even ctrl+alt+esc and ctrl+alt+bsp do not work. However switching to text (ctrl+alt+F2) and back to graphics (ctrl+alt+F8) does unlock it. This is a relatively minor issue, given the benefits gained.
