Currently the audio system in the C200 does not work properly under Linux. There is a bug report at https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/alsa-bug/view.php?id=2725. This is a common problem with new notebooks which hopefully this will be fixed shortly by the ALSA team.
The main issue with the Lenovo 3000 C200 is the audio system not functioning correctly. Other than that there were no problems in getting this laptop working when used with an up to date Linux distribution.
