Installing Arch

This laptop has secure boot enabled by default. To start the installer you need to disable it in the UEFI. Then you can just boot the installer in UEFI mode and just install like a normal UEFI system.

Battery and Power Management

On Linux 4.17 I get about 5 hours on light load, like watching youtube. Installing tlp is a good idea.

Display, Video Card

The integrated Vega GPU works with the AMDGPU drivers. Apparently the display panel is freesync capable.

Touchscreen and Stylus

At the moment (10.06.2017) you need to build a Kernel with custom patches to get the touchscreen working. [1]

Wireless Networking

Works out of the box.


Works, but to use an BT audio device with GNOME you have to install pulseaudio-bluetooth-a2dp-gdm-fixAUR

Hard Drive

Built-in NVME drive works with advertised speed. Blockdevices are loacated at /dev/nvme0n1p*. There is an emty bay for an additional SATA 2.5 inch drive, but you have to buy a proprietary cable.

Dual Boot

Not tested, but there shouldn't any difficulties
