Clevo M350 Noodle Yes AC'97 with ALSA Yes n/a n/a Suspend-to-RAM yes, Suspend-to-disk no Yes, with slmodem IEEE-1394 not tested Front Panel keys doesn't work
Clevo W150HRM 2011.08.19 Intel 950GMA and Nvidia Optimus (Bumblebee works) Intel HDA (OK) Yes Yes Not tested - - - -
Clevo W110ER (April 2013) 2013.04.01 Intel HD Graphics 4000 (i915) and Nvidia GeForce GT 650M with Optimus (nvidia).

HDMI out works.

Bumblebee (3.1-6) works with primus.

bbswitch (bbswitch-dkms-git from AUR, mid-April 2013) is unable to power down the GT 650M to D3cold, but ACPI does that on its own.

ALSA (snd_hda_intel) and PulseAudio

Integrated microphone works.

HDMI audio out works.

Analog headphone out works if the "Independent HP" switch in alsamixer is set to Off.

External microphone jack not tested.

Realtek 8168 (r8169), works. Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 (iwlwifi), unreliable on 802.11n. A workaround is to disable 802.11n with module parameter "11n_disable=1". Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235, works after an initial "sudo hciconfig hci0 up" which persists after reboot. Suspend to disk and ram works (see note on card reader). n/a Webcam works (uvcvideo).

All Fn-keys work.

Screen brightness control works.

Touchpad works with multitouch support.

USB3.0 not tested.

Card reader Realtek 5289 works (rtsx_pci). On kernels 3.8.7 - 3.8.11 sometimes the rtsx_pci_ms module prevents suspend to disk and ram by spawning a kworker which keeps an active workqueue. One workaround is to unload the module before suspend and reload immediately after.

A highly Linux-friendly machine. Tested only in BIOS mode, not in UEFI.
