Notes

The default resolution of this notebook is 1440×900 but due to how the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 works selecting this resolution may not be possible. To fix this you will need to use the 915resolution program. You may like to have a look at our Configuring the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 & 950 article for details.

The multimedia buttons are not currently functioning.

Summary

Apart for the need to use 915resolution the Asus A7F work really well under Linux. The big screen is well supported and looks great as well.
