  Asus (Laptop or Netbook)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What doesn't work:

With the exception of suspend/hibernate everything else works fine.

Additional notes:

This is an Nvidia-Optimus laptop. Enabling the Mint tested Nvidia driver
did not give GL acceleration.

I enabled the swat repo

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

Did not install nvidia-settings (always complained no video selected in Xorg config, and at boot would get stuck at checking battery state)

For me that is fine...waiting for bumblebee to appear in the natty repo.
