  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

It's all working fine, except wifi.

What was done to make it work:

You have to install the B43 firmware for the Broadcom BCM4312 wifi card (firmware-b43-lpphy-installer in the repository).

Additional notes:

You can use a USB CD or DVD drive, or put Linux Mint on a USB stick with Universal USB Installer or Unetbootin, to boot it on this netbook. Use the F9 key at the Q logo to select the proper boot device.
