Notes

This device is mainly composed with Intel parts.

Summary

The overall system response is quite impressive. By far, the best machine have had to work with. I think, the system speed is mainly due to SSD drive (1''8).

Function keys do work too (brightness, NumLock).

WLAN Hardware switch : OK

Using it with KDE, desktop effects enabled (OpenGL).
