MacBook Air 11" (mid-2011)

Postby zts on Fri Feb 08, 2013 2:00 pm

Happy to report that Mint 14 is working almost perfectly right out of the box. Minor settings issues with touchpad, but really nothing major. All keys functional (except for Apple specific dashboard and launchpad, @F3, @F4); lit keyboard controls - OK; volume and screen brightness controls - OK; wireless - OK; etc. A bit slower on start -- starts with somewhat longer grey screen, then goes into black then starts. Shutdown - extremely fast. Only OS on the disk. Installation via Superdrive. Superdrive continues to work w/Mint fine after the install. After install impression: excellent. Areas needing improvement: battery life management under linux (battery life under Linux shorter than under Mac OS X); touchpad (not perfect even under Mac OS X)
