The laptop works well with Ubuntu 14.04 and 12.04. I was astonished to see the touchscreen was detected (although there's not much functionality in Ubuntu to make it worth using as much), bluetooth was working fine, ethernet and keboard were fine as well. Touchpad was detected only as a mouse in 12.04 but has two-finger scrolling support in 14.04. Had to manually insall driver from intel support website for 12.04 but didn't seem to make a difference. Upgraded to 14.04 and internet worked fine so I'm not fully certain if the manual driver install was required. other than that, works fine!
