I tested it on debian and ubuntu, on ubuntu it's all easy, for debian we have to search more for the drivers (wifi and graphic). I'll give you further infos later.
This computer runs well with Linux (ubuntu e debian tested). I thought that the nvidia card cunsumes a lot, but it consumes approssimately like a pc with an intel card: 20-30 Watt during a normal use. You can work with the battery more than 2 hours.
