Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

My advise would be to 'live boot' LMDE (or whatever distro) on your laptop from a USB stick to directly see whether it works well or not, since there is no risk and minimal effort involved in running a test like that.

I have an old Fujitsu Lifebook myself (P2120), which runs LMDE well enough, but it is much too slow for most modern desktop environments -- so I am running it without a desktop at all right now (just command line) as a webserver. I was never able to get all the 'hardware' buttons to work with the distros that I ran on it e.g. email buttons, etc. but that didn't really bother me.
