I have a few problems with the above laptop running Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 & Windows 10 Pro 2040.

1] The earphone socket is damaged, so I am using a 'creative' USB sound card. Works well on all the USB-A sockets, but no signal on the USB-C socket. USB-C works for everything else, but no sound. No sound when using a USB-C adapter with phones plugged into it.

2] Screen has to be set at maximum brightness, Poms still have sun tans! Can improve the colour, but no brighter.
