The intel graphics work fine out of the box. Unfortunately, the hybrid graphics setup is muxless, so {{ic|vgaswitcheroo}} won't work. There is some work in progress towards getting the muxless AMD/Intel setup workingTry [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Hybrid_graphics#ATI_Dynamic_Switchable_Graphics here] if you ''really'' need the hybrid graphics.
Works by following http://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/1nu4pc/muxless_graphics_cards_on_linux/.  I strongly recommend switching to linux-mainline ([https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/linux-mainline/ AUR]) to take advantage of power-management built into 3.12.
The proprietary driver has not been thoroughly tested.
