I only had one experience with an ASUS laptop.  I installed Xubuntu,
but it never worked properly.  In fact, I don't thik I ever got it to
boot.

I installed Mint and ti functioned for a few days, but ultimately I
gave up, bought an HP (which works just fine with Linux).  Then I
reinstalled Win 7 and sold the ASUS.  At a significant loss, I might
add, but just to have the cursed thing out of my sight was worth the
loss.

Their support group was totally unhelpful.

I'll never buy one of their machines, of any kind or configuration, again.
