Works nicely and smoothly on Manjaro Xfce with a 4.9 kernel.

finally everything works out of the box with Mint 17.2. use a nvidia proprietary driver to get an efficient optimus applet. no more pb with the wifi.

- someone please give me a link where i can clearly setup that optimus thing…
- On Mint 17.1 wifi wont work, you'll have to install the driver from backports. And, it won't work until you wake your computer from sleep.
- On ubuntu you'll have to play some tricks to the blacklist to get the wifi disactivation working.

I have one of these laptops being delivered on the weekend - I'm going to try and install Arch, and for completeness I'll do Manjaro, Ubuntu and Elementary OS - Freya Beta ….
