Notes

1) Keyboard MediaButtons: It seems, Fn+F10 button (fight mode) exists only in Russian models (isn't it?) and it is no documented functions for it. Anyway, it is totally ignored by the kernel.
DisplayOff button also totally ignored by the kernel (it is no kernel events even with evbug module loaded).
Also, I never seen Eject and DisplayOff buttons LEDs enabled).
2) Keyboard MediaButtons: Eject button needs “setkeycode” to 161 (XF86Eject). Unfortunately, I don't know KEY_CDEJECT code to work in tty.
3) Ethernet: I've not tested ethernet connection to work, but alx module, at least, loads interface.
4) Audio: If you're about to use headphones — keep in mind, that you need to have “Auto-Mute Mode” to be enabled.
5) Touchpad: works just well, especially with two-finger scrolling, but may need some scroll edge calibration for some people.

Summary

9/10 (Needs some adjustment)

HDMI works fine, but you can't use the VGA and HDMI out at the same time when using the integrated Intel graphics for your window manager. I've heard that you can set your WM to use bumblebee to enable triple monitor but haven't tried it myself.

Everything works great and performs well, except for a minor issue with the touchpad – when coming out of suspend it may not reactivate. You can use the button to turn it off and on again or run sudo rmmod psmouse;sudo modprobe psmouse to reinitialize it and get it working again.

Also works well with two SSDs installed (an mSATA and regular 2.5”).
