    Although the HCL (at the moment) reports details for earlier releases, there's no reason your hardware shouldn't be supported. You might want to detail the info concerning your graphics, ethernet, wireless, and audio chipsets if you want more discussion on this. Are you already running opensuse?

    No problem. You could try with a LiveCD to start with. That will just give you an idea on how good it is. If you choose to install, you have a few choices to make

    1) Dual boot

    OpenSUSE on a Mac - openSUSE

    2) openSUSE takes place of OS X (Not recommended as best option for you)

    3 Run openSUSE within a virtual machine using Parallels Desktop.
