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

Actually running the testing version of Ubuntu (Lucid Lynx) currently.

Everything on the netbook is recognized and works perfectly. You do sacrifice some of the features that come with a Windows installation, including the unique QuickStart, but it still boots in ten seconds with everything updated to current, so I can't imagine QuickStart offers much more speed than that!

What doesn't work:

Initially, the wireless card.

What was done to make it work:

Install proprietary drivers using an ethernet connection.
