Works out of the box. Intel HD 4000
Control of brightness only works after suspend. After wake up, you can control brightness via f11 (less bright) and f12 (more bright). However, it is not brightnes problem, but keyboard buttons' problem. To control brightness while loaded from scratch, you can do the following command:
# cat 4882 > /sys/class/backlight/intel_backlight/brightness
This will change brightness value to 4882. It is maximum brightness level. You can choose some other value, of course.
One touch works out of the box. But it works like a mouse.
In addition to the keyboard, there are some extra Lenovo keys:
- Volume + and - work as intended
- Recovery button has no effect while computer is running
- Screen rotation lock button simulates pressing Super + o
- Windows button under the screen simulates pressing Super. Also gives haptic feedback, currently not controllable by software.

- Mute on F1 works

- Airplane mode on F7 does not work
- Choose application on F8 simulates pressing ctrl+alt+tab. The keys are pressed and instantly released, which (depending on your DE) may not have the intended effect.

Internal Wi-Fi driver (r8723au) is working with a huge troubles with current kernel (3.17.6-1-ARCH). So to get wifi work, blacklist r8723 module. Then you should install AUR[broken link: archived in aur-mirror] package and insert 8723au module.
