  HP Compaq (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Doesn't work as expected
What works:

Cinnamon Live DVD boots but runs very sluggishly. This machine has C2D and 2 GB RAM.

What doesn't work:

Running the live DVD for 15 minutes the entire system bogs down. Programs take 4-6 minutes to open.

What was done to make it work:

Installed it, better but still too slow compared to Windows XP and Mint 13 Xfce.

Additional notes:

Core 2 Duo u7600, 2 GB DDR2, 80 GB HDD, gm965 chipset.
