  Asus (System)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

PinguyOS
Ubuntu 9, 10, 11 (04+10)
Mint 7 - 11
Wireless - out of the box
Intel and Nvidia G210M

What doesn't work:

* webcam displays upside down on cheese and freezes on cheese while recording - absolutely useless with cheese

* screen brightness controls via FN keys wont work on intel graphics, unless i switch to compatibility mode in the BIOS to utilise the Nvidia G210M.

* Using intel GPU only as i get better results then nvidia proprietary drivers.

What was done to make it work:

for brightness keys to work, http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=141&t=72921&p=423986&hilit=ul50vt#p423986
