Summary

Everything works right out of the box with most modern Linux distributions. Proprietary AMD drivers improved performance but the free drivers worked fine. The only problems are the occasionally wonky Bluetooth which seems to switch power modes frequently and does not easily reconnect to devices post sleep or reboot and the terrible touchpad buttons.

Tested with Ubuntu 14.04, Fedora 20, and Deepin 2013.
