Touchpad is recognized correctly since Linux kernel 3.13! For OpenSUSE, I had to install latest kernel from official Factory repo. http://truckinginjurylawyer.com/trucking-accident-injury

I'm running dualboot system with Win8 / openSUSE 12.3 for several months. I was very carefull with installation, so encountered no problem with UEFI or something. However, backlight conrol keys seems to be in conflict with BIOS one (you can switch it off in linux). But the most annoying thing is touchpad. Synaptics driver doesn't recognize one, so system thinks that it is a mouse. The result is no scroll, no sesitivity control, and no way to disable click-on-tap which I hate so much! It so easy to touch one while typing - and cursor jumps to some unpredictable place. Wireless conrol button also doesn't work. Video is ok, you may also install bumblebee. So… the laptop is OK with linux, could be better.
