The Acer Aspire V3-571G works well with Linux.

Webcam works, slight heating between 3.14 and 4.1. 4.1.6 seems to fixed the issue. Sometimes you have to mess with bumblebee to work (depends on the distribution), but not too much. Everything else works.

Any body use Acer Aspire V3-571G with gentoo linux?

Mario, 2015/10/14 15:39

Why using of the proprietary NVIDIA drivers along with Bumblebee do best results?

Mark, 2015/08/27 18:21
How stable it works with Bumblebee?
Jason, 2015/06/10 12:19

Why do you say that the webcam does not work ? So far I have not had any problems (I'm in the g version). I use Google hangouts all the time with no issues. On another note however I do not agress with the graphics card summation. The best and easiest way to use the laptop is with the intel graphic cards. The problem with the nvidia card is that is the Optimus version and installing it is near impossible. I did manage to install it and get it working only to have it crash once I opened steam.

Я недавно поставил убунту 14,04 64-разрядную отказывается работать ZTE mf180 usb-модем beeline модель i3-2…. подскажите какую версию поставить на него лучше и лт что можно сделать с модемом?

Nikos, 2013/11/12 20:41

It requires a lot of hussle to make the graphics card work. With most of the distributions you will not have 3d acceleration out of the box. I regretted buying it because of that reason.

Webcam working fine with Arch Linux

Linux vala 3.10.18-1-lts #1 SMP Mon Nov 4 15:08:33 CET 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I use Acer Aspire V3-571G with Core i5-3210M, NVidia GT630M and 8GB Ram.
My Linux distro is Sabayon Linux (KDE 4.10.2) with Kernel 3.8.5.
I can confirm,
Bluetooth is working since Kernel 3.8,
VGA out is working,
Suspend to disk / ram is working,
Build-In Micro and Plug-In Micro is working,
Headphone port is working.

I have problems with USB3, so I connect USB3-drive on USB2.
But for USB2 devices (Mouse, dvb-t …) on USB3, it works fine.

nice computer, big screen.. all works out of the box with ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS. only thing causing problems is the build-in bluetooth, which cant be found by my s2.. brightness settings are also rather crude..
other than that, no problems..
