Linux Compatibility

HDDWorksGeneric 2.5” SATA
GraphicsAlmost worksPicture works immediately, nVidia card works with ironhide
EthernetWorks RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 06)
ModemNot Tested
USBWorksInstalled Ubuntu from USB stick
Card ReaderWorks
WebcamWorks Picture maybe upside down. Solutions are available
HDMI Out Not Working The blame probably rests with Optimus technology


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. :)

Hi. I have substantially increased my battery life on this laptop with BumbleBee: If you experience sub par battery life with Linux, give BumbleBee a try!
