Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit (as at September 9th 2014)

To use with my external monitor (Samsung SyncMaster 2492HS) I've used a HDMI to DVI cable and the stable NVIDIA binary driver 331.38.

All other combinations caused a variety of problems from blurry, dim output to incorrect size (direct HDMI cable).

Not convinced if I can use the laptop screen as well without it crashing.

Wireless on boot issue solved by creating /etc/modprobe.d/asus.conf with

options asus_nb_wmi wapf=1

Juniper VPN was/is tricky. The solution I used was (That's a 64 bit issue - not specific to this laptop)

Great value laptop though :-)
