|RAM||Up to 8GB|
|Optical Drive||Blu-Ray DVD Combo (Optional)
|Graphics||NVIDIA GeForce 630M|
Integrated 802.11 b/g/n
|Screen||Works||Very, very rarely thin black stripes appear on the screen for a blink of an eye. During one and a half year's time has not had a permanent effect on the system.|
|Graphics Chip||Works||Also with Bumblebee (because of dual GPU) https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee|
|VGA Out||Not Tested|
|Display Port||Not Tested|
|TouchPad||Works||Works after some configuring. Instructions/troubleshooting https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SynapticsTouchpad and http://askubuntu.com/questions/18482/whats-the-recommended-way-to-configure-a-synaptics-touchpad-device After configuring, edge scrolling works also, and two-finger-tap for right-mouse-click.|
|Suspend/Resume||Unknown||There used to be a bug in Ubuntu 12.04 that would leave the screen black when resuming from suspend. Not sure what the state of the bug is now. It's still possible to resume working without rebooting by killing/restarting X. It is possible to just disable suspend and just turn off the screen if need be, which is what I did.|
Other than having to configure the touchpad in the beginning, and setting up Bumblebee to use the Nvidia GPU, works great.
