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. Installingis a good idea.
Display, Video Card
The integrated Vega GPU works with the AMDGPU drivers. Apparently the display panel is freesync capable.

Works out of the box.
Works, but to use an BT audio device with GNOME you have to installAUR
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.
