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

Linux Mint Julia, Katya, and Lisa works perfectly on the system.

What doesn't work:

Firefox is a little buggy when it was in Julia but when I upgraded to Katya the bugs were elimnated.

What was done to make it work:

Updated the OS to Katya.

Additional notes:

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.
