Linux Mint Julia, Katya, and Lisa works perfectly on the system.
Firefox is a little buggy when it was in Julia but when I upgraded to Katya the bugs were elimnated.
Updated the OS to Katya.
Linux Mint Katya works best on this laptop, even though Lisa is a newer OS. Perhaps this is more due to me preferring the Gnome 2 interface than Gnome 3 with MATE.
