Alas Mint 13 64bit is very unstable on my Dell Studio Xps 17 (i7 with 8g) laptop. I have tried all versions and have re-installed Mint 11 Gnome (which is fantastic),
it may be a 3rd party driver issue as I require the Broadcom STA proprietary wireless driver and the ATI/AMD propriety FGLRX graphics driver.
My issues are;
I have a logitec bluetooth mouse which worked with Mint11 but under Mint13 it would say it was connected but did not work, sometimes I could get it to work by removing it, rebooting and in connecting
(and the bluetooth interface is less user friendly)
the ATI/AMD FGLRX graphics driver did not work (caused odd graphic corruptions)
the X window manager dies after a few days (first time I though I'd broken it by installing Java7) the second time it dies I installed twm just to get to a point where I could save the files I was working on
after that twm seemed to be used as a fall back windowmanager and the only solution was a reinstall
and from then onwards my wifi stopped working. (thus I have returned to Mint11 which has been rock solid for the last year)
