Compaq nc6120

  HP (Hewlett-Packard) (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Graphics, WLAN, Bluetooth all out-of-the-box.

What doesn't work:

Nothing as I know.

Additional notes:

You need at least 512MB memory for Gnome. The nc6120's with 256MB can't run Linux Mint 11 Main Edition without a pre-configured swap; the LXDE edition will run well I think. But it's easy to put some more RAM into the laptop.
