Review of Linux Compatibility

The Dell Inspiron N4110 is a 14 inch laptop, which is fully supported under Linux.
It was successfully tested with Linux kernel 3.13:

Linux version 3.13.0-24-generic (buildd@panlong) (gcc version 4.8.2 (Ubuntu 4.8.2-19ubuntu1) ) #46-Ubuntu SMP Thu Apr 10 19:11:08 UTC 2014

under Linux Mint 17 (Qiana):

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: LinuxMint
Description:    Linux Mint 17 Qiana
Release:        17
Codename:       qiana

All components (except for Bluetooth which seems to be recognized but was not tested) are automatically recognized by the kernel and fully supported.

WiFi:

The WiFi uses the Atheros AR9285 chipset, which is fully supported by the ath9k kernel module:

 02:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) [168c:002b] (rev 01)
            Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1702 802.11bgn Half-size Mini PCIe Card [AR9002WB-1NGCD] [1028:0205]
            Kernel driver in use: ath9k

It is automatically recognized and fully supported.

Sound:

The internal soundcard is supported by the snd_hda_intel driver:

snd_hda_intel 0000:00:1b.0: irq 51 for MSI/MSI-X
autoconfig: line_outs=1 (0x14/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0) type:speaker
   speaker_outs=0 (0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
   hp_outs=1 (0x21/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
   mono: mono_out=0x0
   inputs:
     Mic=0x18
     Internal Mic=0x12
input: HDA Intel PCH HDMI/DP,pcm=3 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input12

input: HDA Intel PCH Mic as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/input10

Bluetooth:

The Bluetooth chipset bases on the Atheros AR3011 chipset and has the USB ID 0cf3:3005

Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0cf3:3005 Atheros Communications, Inc. AR3011 Bluetooth

It is automatically recognized by the kernel:

Bluetooth: Core ver 2.17
NET: Registered protocol family 31
Bluetooth: HCI device and connection manager initialized
Bluetooth: HCI socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: L2CAP socket layer initialized
Bluetooth: SCO socket layer initialized

But has not been tested.

Webcam:

The internal webcam has the USB ID 1bcf:2880

Bus 001 Device 004: ID 1bcf:2880 Sunplus Innovation Technology Inc.

and works out of the box thanks to the uvcvideo driver, which automatically supports this webcam:

usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=1bcf, idProduct=2880
usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
