    Get more data. What logic board, chipset, bios? There are lots of distro out there that may work well. I tried a bunch for my Dell and ended up unhappy until I installed iATKOS v7. It uses vanilla kernel, which you will want, EFI, and you can do Apple software update. Follow the instructions, know your hardware and be conservative on first install.

    Then try some other distro, until you find the one that makes the computer run best. If you get a homerun right off, do not mess with it.
