That laptop has an ATI/AMD GPU which is supported by linux-libre but has no 3D acceleration, however the internal WiFi doesn't work. Removing the internal WiFi card also results in the device not booting anymore. The screen was also glossy which makes it hard to use due to adverse health effect with it (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossy_display#Adverse_health_effects) but gives better colors for movies in the dark. As when that laptop was given to me, most external connectors (USB, Ethernet, and card reader) didn't work due to some failing components that allegedly took fire inside the mainboard. This left me with the SATA and ESATA connector working, which wasn't really usable with Parabola. So I couldn't test if all that were supposed to work or not.
