I did install Mint 12 over the weekend on my weak HP laptop. The WiFi is flakey and Win7 won't connect properly. But the Mint install went perfectly (even with the Nvidia drivers). Discovered my WiFi and properly connected. Was easy to establish security settings (unlike many other linix distros). Did install Chrome and that went perfectly as well. Did some customization just to play with the user interface. Went back to default look as it is quite nice.
