Notes

Screen angles are not so good. Case of a cheap plastic, but overall very good price to value ratio.

Summary

Installed Ubuntu 14.04.1 in UEFI legacy mode from USB pendrive without any problems. It was necessary to install Intel graphics driver for better performance. P_State had to be enabled with: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=“quiet splash intel_pstate=enable”.
