In Debian (and maybe other distros) the webcam shows an upside-down image in programs such as Cheese and Skype. Fixing requires installation of libv4l-0 and v4l2ucp and invoking the latter as an argument when starting the program. Instructions on how to do this can be found on the web.
Kernel 188.8.131.52 and earlier require a patch to fix a problem with speaker audio not muting when headphones are plugged in.
Add “i915.powersave=0” (without quotes) to grub boot parameters if you experience flashing display.
Overall a speedy laptop for Linux with good battery life (4.5 hrs. avg.).
