  Lenovo (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Everything works, but it takes a little effort.

What doesn't work:

Out of the box, screen rotation, fingerprint reader, middle button scroll, drive protection, and a few buttons do not work. All can be made to work without compiling anything.

What was done to make it work:

I followed this tutorial:

Additional notes:

This laptop has a lot of hardware extras, including touch screen, fingerprint reader, TPM, SD card reader, stylus, and docking station expansion. Having it all work as expected is a testament to the OSS world's hard work and dedication.

I like this tablet quite a bit (the keyboard alone was worth the purchase).
