i have issues with screen resolution, it run only in 640×480 after an upgrade… also “additional drivers” doesn't can't find anything….

Saurabh, 2012/06/18 11:37

Additional drivers won't find anything since it has an Nvidia chipset working in Optimus mode. You should try installing bumblebee again. I have returned this latop since it has some defect but I could configure it to work perfectly with Ubuntu 12.04.

Except for sleep and hibernate (limitation of bumblebee) everything works. Pulse audio bug regarding headphone jack is present in this laptop but the workaround from here https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alsa-driver/+bug/660715 until it's fixed. HDMI audio/video work as well. Haven't tried multi-touch on track pad.

Saurabh, 2012/06/18 11:38

Update : I could configure the sleep and hibernate options to work as well. I don't remember where I found those solutions. I have returned the laptop because it had some defect in it which was totally unrelated to Ubuntu. So with some time and patience it should work perfectly with Ubuntu 12.04

everything works.
debian testing + debumblebee

There is no good support for Nvidia optimus. Also does not go to sleep and does not hibernate.

HDMI port is not working at all.
