Most components of the ASUS VivoBook S301LP works out of the box with most Linux distro without using any particular system. It has been tested with Arch Linux (64 bit), Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (64 bit), Kubuntu 14.04 LTS (64 bit), Antergos (64 bit) and Elementary OS. In this last one I couldn't make the touch work.
The integrated Intel Graphics Chipset works very well; I tested Dedicated Graphics Chipset AMD Radeon HD8530M only using open source drivers.
Anyway the ASUS VivoBook S301LP supports Linux very well without having to install any driver or additional package.
