Although I had some problems installing kubuntu 13.04 (I had to install with legacy boot and then setup efi - something's wrong with grub-efi: I remember needing to change a script to complete the installation), kubuntu 12.10 was pretty easy to install! So I recommend it!

About the sound: when I installed skype, I realized that only one application at the time could use the sound card.. I could sit down and search the source of the problem, but it sounded much easier to stop pulseaudio and just use alsa!

About the audio combo jack: Microphones with a single 3-pin jack didn't work (I haven't do my research on that.. maybe I need to configure it to choose whether I installed a micro or headphones). But using any single handsfree set (from my cellphone) everything worked fine!!

I bought this laptop (Core i5 model) about a week ago and I am pretty happy with it! Almost everything works excellent so far and all the others (like the multitouch screen) are still under testing.. So I'll vote this laptop with an “Excellent” score!

The biggest con is (surprise-surprise!) the default operating system! You just can't work with Windows 8! So have a nice installation people!!
