Notes

Most Linux distribution do not support the NVIDIA Geforce 8600M in the Asus V1S. You will need to install the proprietary NVIDIA drivers for the display to function properly. Future Linux distributions will solve this issue for 2D but the Nvidia drivers will still be needed for 3D.

Summary

Installing the Nvidia drivers is the only task that needs to be preformed for a properly working setup on the Asus V1S.

Everything works greate except Syntek video camera. You will need to install the Syntek driver for the camera to function properly. And it doesn't work with Skype v. 2.2 or higher, you should use v. 2.1 only.

For sound add “options snd_hda_intel model=lenovo” in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base

More information (Model specific variants, konfiguration,..) can be found here: http://notebookwiki.eu/wiki/index.php/Asus_V1S
It's in German but the main things should be clear

everything works great - except sound - the usual problem - sound is coming from both built in speakers and headphones
