 +===== Summary =====
 +The laptop works great as long as you have it properly configured. You might have a couple issues getting everything set up at first, especially with 64-bit issues. However, these issues tend to exist in Windows 7 as well. Flash being the ugliest issue. It does work though. I actually prefer the way the laptop operates in Linux than Windows 7. For instance, the "​trackpad"​ requires almost no changes, whereas in Windows 7 Home Premium I cannot get it to work to my liking that's WITH proprietary software installed.
 +Edit by Reventlov :
 +For the backlit keyboard, I use acpi and the acpi daemon to modify the brightness.
