I would try Mint 18.3 see what is does new kernel. If you have windows shares on your network be aware that samba is broken in Mint 19 due to it being based on Ubuntu 18.04 but can be fixed by editing the samba config file need to search how on the web. If you do not use windows shares than this will not effect you using Mint 19.

I'm on linux mint 17.3 Rosa with this computer and it works perfectly, I just disable hibernate because it don't work all the time, my computer don't wake up properly. I don't understand for the moment what is the problem.
so I delete the file : sudo rm /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/com.ubuntu.enable-hibernate.pkla

For the suspend on battery, it is necessary to install and to configure dconf-editor in tab :
org > mate > power-manager > action-sleep-type-battery : put suspend else the computer hibernate after the inactive period.

I tried debian 8.2 to, Wifi must be manually installing and after installing the intel graphics, the suspend and the hibernate didn't work.
