Runs LinuxMint 18.2 quite well.
There is no in-kernel driver for the Realtek WiFi, and the rtlwifi-new driver on GitHub specifically says it probably won't work with a Ubuntu modified kernel, which LinuxMint is based on.
everything else I tested, webcam, bluetooth, touchpad, etc. works OK.
Touchpad is quite sensitive, but its performance can be backed down with xinput.
Tested with A12 processor which has Radeon R7 graphics.
