Lenovo Ideapad G710 (Notebook, 17.3 Inch, Intel Core i3 4000M, 6GB Ram, 500 GB HDD, NVIDIA Geforce 820M)
Review of Linux Compatibility
The Lenovo IdeaPad G710 is supported under Linux. However, out-dated distributions might have trouble with the WiFi chipset, which bases on the Broadcom BCM43142:
01:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:4365] (rev 01)
This chipset is supported by the driver package bcmwl, but only since version 22.214.171.124 (see Changelog).
