The ONLY problem with this laptop and Linux is the Atheros AR9485 WiFi adapter. With most current Linux distributions (as of 15 March 2014, and/or at least kernel 3.11, maybe earlier), after booting the Network Manager reports wireless neteworking has been disabled in hardware. There are two ways to get around this: First, just “Sleep” the system (Fn-F1) and then wake it up again; second, create the file /etc/modprobe.d/asus_nb_wmi.conf with contents “options asus_nb_wmi wapf=1”, then reboot.


openSuSE 13.1, Fedora 20, Linux Mint 16 and Linux Mint Debian Edition installed and all work, no problems other than wireless networking as described above. In addition, Debian 7.4 (Wheezy) installed and works, and doesn't even have the wireless networking problem (I suppose because it is still running kernel 3.2.x).
