For the moment I recommend using 13 Mate or 13 Xfce on these laptops with Intel GMA 3600, there you can install cedarview-graphics-drivers (on a fresh Mint 13 install, you first need to run the updater once, since the package did not yet exist by the time the ISOs where made).
You could boot by adding the xforcevesa boot argument in 14, but it will not work as well as 13 with cedarview driver. It won't have any hardware acceleration of the graphics, which can be quite noticeable on a slower CPU like Atom.
