|Headphone Port||works perfectly|
|Microphone-In Port||Not Tested|
|Card Reader||does not work|
|TouchPad||works perfectly||(creating a middle button is a mess, but that's a Linux/X11/Ubuntu mess not hardware releated)|
Running Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit on it, and beside the hissing sound on MicIn everything works really fine.
During installation, the Live installation did not work for me, had to boot into the install directly (might need some extra options, don't remember now).
Can be bought without OS (technically Linpus Lite was preinstalled on my device).
I'm running it with 2 external panels (HDMI, VGA) and the intern panel, and the Intel HD4400 (that is used by default) has no problems handling that.
Been using the laptop now for roughly 3 months only on Ubuntu, it works fine, and is probably one of the most extensible laptops currently (4 memory slots, 2×2.5“ SATA, 1x MSATA, plus optical device that can be turned into 2.5” bay too).
