Running XUbuntu 14:04 64-bit as primary OS. Working fine. No Problems with switchable Graphics and most function-keys are working.

On this Site the specs are given as 16GB Ram, not sure if that is available, I only have 4GB.

I am running Mint 14 mate 64bit and everything works except for the sound. I have installed it 3 times and with each new install the sound works. Then after the first reboot the sound stops working altogether. A few times it came back the next day and the other times i had to re-install to get it back. I even made a new usb stick to boot from. This is a new laptop and it works in windows just fine.

Which window manager / bitness iso were you using? I have had nothing but trouble getting my ge60 setup.

Been using Linux Mint 14 on this machine as my primary OS. Everything works well without any major issues. Bumblebee must be installed to switch between the integrated and dedicated GPUs. The hardware eject, screen off, and P1 buttons are software based so I haven't found a way to use them in Linux. Wireless on/off switch and turbo fan button work. Sound settings identifies the laptop's 4 speakers as 4 channel, which is pretty neat, though I'm not sure if practical.
