I'm sure a lot of people will be interested in having Lion on this laptop, since it offers great value for money spent. The specs are:


  • i5 2410 2.3 GHz
  • 4 GB memory
  • Intel HD3000 and GT520M graphics
  • 2xUSB 2.0, 1x USB 3.0, HDMI, VGA and Ethernet ports
  • 500 GB harddrive
  • No optical drive
  • Weight 1.66 kg (3.7 lb)


I used the installation procedure and kexts described here:


Working so far:

  • Battery
  • Audio
  • Graphics: Intel HDMI and laptop display
  • Cardreader (does not show in system profiler but works)
  • USB3 (have not tested with a USB3 device)
  • Ethernet: Atheros 8151
  • Wireless: Atheros 9825
  • Bluetooth: Atheros 3011 requires a reboot via windows to turn it on


Not working:

  • Sleep, shutdown and proper power management
  • GT 520M is recognized but not used
  • HDMI audio
  • VGA: only recognized if external display is attached before boot and the picture is very bad


I tried to look at the DSDT to enable sleep, since that and Bluetooth are the only things I would really like to get working. I had no success in the edits and it's actually way too advanced for me. I'm now asking for someone with DSDT editing skills to take a look at the unmodified DSDT. This laptop is very promising and I think a custom DSDT would benefit many people (including me of course).
