Linux Compatibility

DeviceCompatibilityComments
ProcessorYesTested with Ubuntu 13.04, 14.04, 14.10, 15.04, and Arch version 229.
ScreenYesTested with Ubuntu 13.04, 14.04, 14.10, 15.04, and Arch version 229. Had some detection issues on Ubuntu 15.04 (framerate and model) (old results, mileage may vary).
HDDYesTested with Ubuntu 13.04, 14.04, 14.10, 15.04, and Arch version 229.
Graphics ChipGood (With configuration)Tested with Arch Linux version 229. Use Bumblebee and Primus to achieve optimal performance. If you're using Arch, using the Linux-ck kernel optimized for Haswell, and configuring the executable with schedtool will result in increased performance and/or a reduction in stuttering while rendering. I had trouble getting Bumblebee working in Ubuntu (all versions 13.04 to 15.04), but these are old results, and your mileage may vary.
HDMI OutYes (except Ubuntu 15.04)Tested with Ubuntu 13.04, 14.10, 15.04, and Arch version 229. Worked fine on Ubuntu 13.04, 14.04, 14.10, and Arch. Non-functional on Ubuntu 15.04 (old results, mileage may vary).

BluetoothYesTested with Ubuntu 13.04, 14.04, 14.10, and 15.04. Proper drivers need to be installed on some distros.

Notes

2016 Update: Bumblebee + Proprietary Nvidia Drivers also work on Arch. With a little configuration, Arch Linux seems to work great on this laptop. I suggest the Linux-ck kernel optimized for Haswell, in addition to Bumblebee, Primus, and Schedtool for configuring 3D applications to run at their full potential. In the HL2 Lost Coast video stress test at the highest settings, I get approximately 125 FPS with no stuttering. In Windows, I get 175 FPS, but with occasional stuttering. With v-sync on, you won't notice a difference between Windows or Linux performance in Source engine games.

2015 Update: Fedora 22 works fully as of August 2015 if you boot with flags: ld.blacklist.driver=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0
Optimus is really buggy, so just forget about the NVIDIA card for now. Fedora runs really stable and fast with integrated graphics. Everything works, suspend, function keys etc. You can try to install NVIDIA drivers, but don't forget to disable Secure Boot.
UPDATE: Bumblebee works like a charm, and you can use the NVIDIA card. Follow this: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Bumblebee Yay!!!

2015, Old: Stick to Ubuntu 13.04 or Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for the best compatibility (as of March 2015).

Summary

2016 Update: Everything works great with Bumblebee.

2015, Old: Overall, the most issues arise from poor support for the GTX 770M (at fault of Nvidia) as of March 2015. If you don't need to take advantage of the GTX 770M you'll be fine. If you do, consider a laptop with a Radeon card, or prepare for a difficult setup. Try an LTS release, because distro upgrades will likely break your graphics drivers.
