The application PCB is okay with nouveau driver in low resolution graphics.  With the Mint15 recommended driver 310 or the latest 319 all I get is a white screen and so so very slow response to clicking a tab.  All is really super good on my laptop.  Also of lesser importance Firefox and Thunderbird have a small tendency to open with some garbage that I clear by re sizing the window.  This was a lot worse on Mint13 though PCB was usable.  In addition waking up and signing in there is a long long delay before the system becomes active.  The laptop with different video and Mint 15 is super good. Ian.
