installed #! crunchbang 11 (aka debian wheezy) with little to no issues.

things that i had to do pre-install were:
- bios update
- remove raid from SSD/HDD

install with #! gui installer. i chose to have the root be the SSD and home be the 500gb HHD.

once installed you can boot to the grub menu just fine. but once you start the OS the screen will go black. this is an issue with the debian kernel itself. if you need edit the grub file (/boot/grub/grub.cfg) to enable the backlight. personally i use:

linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.2.0-4-amd64 root=UUID=8636f15b-585c-4ec0-9ab9-2a7c2db0f530 ro quiet splash acpi_backlight=vendor backlight_level=10

the important bit is “acpi_backlight=vendor backlight_level=10”

once you can “see” your os, it's pretty much ready to go. the only other issue i had was with the touchpad. i had to manually set the AreaBottomEdge of the synaptics driver for the touchpad, or i could scroll or click on the button area.

all and all, the machine works great with linux!
