Wifi does not work out of box, because you need to install broadcom-wl-dkms-248AUR driver.

Even then the LED for wifi does not work, eveh when pressing the keyboard combo for enabling/disabling it.

Warning: Using the proprietary driver with KMS leads to sporadic OS freeze! I suppose that is problem with sporadic OS freezes.

Function keys

You can not change backlight brightness value with keyboard combo, buttons are not mapped at all (fn + F5 / fn + F6), until you use the kernel parameter acpi_osi= acpi_backlight=native to your bootloader. acpi_osi= it is indeed followed by a blank space + acpi_backlight=native. This is only way when backlight can be controled with keyboard combo keys.
