Notes

Fedora 17 works well on this notebook. I've only had to learn how to configure grub2-efi (I migrated the root fs of my previous notebook). Installing fedora 17 from scratch works provided you disable Secure boot from bios.
I haven't tested fedora 18 with and without secure boot enable. I'll do it later when I'll have some spare time.

Bumblebee installation (nvidia geforce optimus):

Bluetooth support

I had to create an udev rule:
/etc/udev/rules.d/90-bcmbt.rules

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0489", ATTR{idProduct}=="e052", RUN+="/usr/local/sbin/bcm-bluetooth.sh"

/usr/local/sbin/bcm-bluetooth.sh

#!/bin/bash

/sbin/modprobe btusb
echo '0489 e052' > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/btusb/new_id

Summary

Linux seems to work well on this notebook, provided you use a recent distribution.

I envision writing a whole post on the subject someday, but since that’s probably not gonna happen cause I’m
