I've tried this laptop with Linux Mint and Kubuntu; it works OK, the biggest issue I've had is that once in a while when waking from sleep you can't log back in. Either you'll be able to enter in your password and when you hit 'Enter' nothing happens, or you simply can't enter in any characters into the password field. I'd say it happens 1:20 or 1:30 times, and I can't find a reliable precursor or indicator to when it'll happen.

The touchpad controls didn't work for me with Linux Mint in terms of being able to toggle it on/off with keyboard buttons, but works fine with Kubuntu. I also have an external drive plugged in that will sometimes not be 'woken up' after the laptop sleeps, either, which can be a pain in the rear when all you want to do is just access some files. Granted, the fix is simply unplugging and plugging it back into the USB port, but it's a minor annoyance.

WiFi, ethernet, video, sound, and webcam all work fine for me.

I can confirm this laptop works well with linux. I have complete functionality in linux mint 18 except for the webcam. This might be an issue with my webcam as it does not function in windows either.
