Suspend/hibernate causes the computer to lock up. It is because of the USB3 incompatibility. Fixes are
available on internet.
The laptop uses nVidia's Optimus technology, which runs nVidia card in “kind of” slave mode. User can install
ironhide to get around that. HDMI output might be connected to nVidia card.
Apart from that everything works great. I plugged an SSD into mine and it now performs a complete reboot in 12 seconds. Neat. :)
