1. Can be swapped for a Kingston SSDNOW V300 120GB. It works too.
2. To get the touchpad working, you need to append “i8042.notimeout” to your grub file. For some reason it didn't work for me the first time around, but after a lot of mucking about and some fresh installs, I tried again and it worked.
3. The laptop does not have a native Ethernet adapter but comes with a USB Ethernet dongle. The dongle uses ASIX ethernet chip (ASIX AX88772B USB 2.0 Ethernet). Tested with Linux 3.10.
4. Card reader uses ums_realtek module. Tested with Linux 3.10.
To disable Secure boot and enable CMS (Compatibility Module Support, MBR booting in other words) it is necessary to set up BIOS Supervisor Password. Once the password is set Secure Boot can be disabled and CMS can be enabled.
Suspend to ram works quite well, except some devices stop responding after resuming.
The following modules must be reloaded after resuming (as of 3.10-1 on Debian):
* psmouse (to re-enable the touchpad)
* ums_realtek (to re-enable the sd card reader)
