Settings

Video

Laptop comes with two GPU's (main INTEL and dedicated NVIDIA):

[punky@laptop ~]$ lspci | grep VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Atom Processor Z36xxx/Z37xxx Series Graphics & Display (rev 0e)

For Intel HD install: xf86-video-intel

[punky@laptop ~]$ lspci | grep 3D
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M/810M/820M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev a1)

For using Nvidia install bumblebee along with Nvidia and Intel drivers.

Lan

Works fine with no configuration required.

Wifi

Wifi does not work out of box, because you need to install driver from AUR:

broadcom-wl-dkms

Ethernet works good, so you can use cable for installing wifi driver.

Warning: Using the proprietary driver with KMS leads to sporadic OS freeze! I suppose that is problem with sporadic OS freezes.

Audio

Install PulseAudio.

After installation, reboot the laptop to ensure all modules are loaded. Audio works well both with pure ALSA and with PulseAudio.

Touchpad

Touchpad works with: xf86-input-synaptics

Brightness

Brightness does work out of box, but you can not change value with keyboard combo, buttons are not mapped at all (fn + F5 / fn + F6), untill you use the kernel parameter acpi_osi= acpi_backlight=native to your bootloader. acpi_osi= it's indeed followed by a blank space + acpi_backlight=native. This is only way when backlight can be controled with keyboard combo keys.

Webcam

Cheese works fine out of the box.

Bluetooth & Card reader

I did not test bluetooth because I am not using it, also I did not test card reader, but I think that card reader works fine.

Problems

Led

I did not find a way to resolve problem with led for wifi. Every other led (battery, hdd, backlight) works good, but led for wifi does not work even keyboard combo (fn + F2) for enabling / disabling wifi works.
