No real difficult getting Xorg running - heres the packages I installed - should get everything running;
# pacman -S xorg xf86-input-keyboard xf86-input-mouse synaptics xf86-video-intel
Then auto configure X using your favorite method and you're good to go.
Pulseaudio did the job admirably for me getting the sound working;
# pacman -S pulseaudio alsaplugins jack-audio-connection-kit
