Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Installing dual boot Linux and Windows 8 will be very difficult. I bought this exact system a few days ago and ended up wiping out the Win 8 to install my linux. In addition I have yet to find a driver for the wlan card.

8GB memory is not a problem since you will need to install 64-bit Linux.
