Will mint 17.2 run on a Lenovo G50 with a Pentium N3540 on sale at PCWorld?

I take it this is the same Laptop, just with a Celeron N2840 CPU instead of the Pentium N3540 ?

If you read those reviews, people are happily running Mint 17.2 (though you might now want 17.3 which was jus released) .. google suggestes the only problem people seem to have with the G50 series (also confirmed by one of the reviews at the link above) is that wireless might need a little tweaking (some options adding to a config file), which we should be able to assist with.
