Only bigger “issue” is that since the DVMT (dynamic video memory technology) is apparently not supported in Ubuntu or in Linux in general (?), the integrated graphics takes about half of the 4 GB ram as the Lenovo BIOS has no settings for DVMT. In practice this causes a lot of swapping, as the RAM gets full so easily. Solution: RAM upgrade.
Out-of-the-box experience has been very good on Ubuntu 12.10 and on 13.04.
