[SOLVED] Acer Aspire 5 A515-51G-503E

Post by Scotty1300 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 9:28 pm

I'm new to the Linux Mint community, in fact, so new that I have not yet settled on which machine to install Mint onto. I am currently looking at purchasing an Acer Aspire A515-51G-503E with a quad-core Intel Core i5-8250U Processor. I am going to be using the laptop primarily for audio production, and I simply want to know if the machine will be compatible with Linux Mint, and if so which version to install. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you. If there will be any issues with this laptop, suggestions on different computers around the same price-range ($600) would also be useful.

Apparently it does, although there were practically no hits in a Google search. At any rate, there are people selling that model or similar models with Linux installed on them.

Thank you. This was exactly the type of reassurance I was looking for. Looks like it'll be a go for the A515.

Did you buy it? Did the installation went without problems?
I'm looking into buying the same laptop

Edit: I bought Acer Swift 3 with amd Ryzen 5.. running manjaro Linux currently.
