I rated this laptop as good with Fedora. The major detraction is the 3840×2160 disply driven by an NVidia display driver. Fedora uses the generis Neveau display driver for Nvidia. The driver does not detect the video card, and therefore can't get the resolution to the correct size.

Every other feature works very well with this laptop.
