  Works perfectly
What works:

Works perfectly when using restricted drivers.

Additional notes:

This laptop requires a workaround if you want to install Mint without deleting the original Windows 7 branded with this machine. Essentially is using gparted for creating the linux partitions, and then give to your / (or /boot) partition the "boot" flag. If you don't do it, the grub installer will crash at the end of setup.
