Hardware

Audio

There are two options to get audio working: ALSA and PulseAudio. With ALSA the sound works well, both headphone jacks work and volume can be set independently. With Pulse Audio you will generally get better quality and louder sound.

Video

The notebook comes with the Intel HD Graphics 620 GPU, which uses the xf86-video-intel driver. See: Intel for details.

Keyboard

Keyboard worked out of the box.

Touchpad

Touchpad worked out of the box. To enable scroll and more, install xf86-input-libinput. With the default configuration file it will work well, but if you want to fine tune the behavior.

See: Libinput.

Touchscreen

Touchscreen worked out of the box. More can be done after installing xf86-input-evdev. Works well with the default configuration file.

Wireless

This laptop comes Intel Corporation Wireless 3165 wireless card, which worked out of the box.

See: Wireless network configuration.

HDMI/Monitor

USB, SD card slot, HDMI, webcam
