Notes

I couldn't get the fingerprint reader working, I've tried fprintd with aes2501-wy but the OS doesn't recognize the reader. It also doesn't show up with lsusb.
I'm using Debian Wheezy with linux-image-3.2.0-3-amd64.

lmsensor supports the chipset quite well and 4 temperature sensors + the CPU sensors are detected.

Summary

This notebook works pretty well out of the box with Linux, no big issues found (except fingerprint reader).
