  Lenovo (15.6" laptop)
  Mint (older version)
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

mostly everything works its 5+ yrs old 4gigs of ram 320 hard drive,camera works,sound card works,ethernet ports work, usb ports work
micro sd card slot not sure never needed it.

What doesn't work:

The dvd drive and it heats up and micro sd port not sure.

What was done to make it work:

existing hardware issues can only remedied with upgrade of parts even hard drive although I am obviously still using the question is for how long. I believe it is failing and on its way out unfortunately. I have used it 5+ years and has served me well.

Additional notes:

I am not a super although I think as long as I have used Linux I should be. I use my blog, screen casts, audio posts, video posts to you tube to promote Linux but, perhaps I have not made an impact as I should yet, I will continue to try to help others at every opportunity that presents itself. I have used Linux since Ubuntu 7.04. I think that is april 2007 and I am now 50.
