This laptop does very well with recent Linux distros. OpenSuse 12.3 and Debian Jessie work perfectly with it. Debian Wheezy works pretty well, but the screen is stuck on the brightest setting. Kernel 3.7 is the oldest Kernel that everything seems to work with. The BIOS has a whitelist for wireless cards (only Realtek works on this model), so you either have to hack the BIOS or the wireless card if you want an open source friendly card. Also, suspend does not work without non-free firmware.
