Pros: runs perfectly with openSuse linux 13.1. No issues whatsoever.

Cons: Windows 8. (a bummer that such garbage is included in the cost of this laptop).

Other Thoughts: After charging and verifying that the machine booted, I pulled out the hardrive, installed a corsair force 3 SSD that I had sitting around and put in the OpenSuse install disc. everything went swimmingly. 2 reboots and a lengthy update later and I was streaming music and watching movies. I am able to use the special function keys to control, eg the volume, I can plug laptop into a monitor via the hdmi plug without any trouble, and use my wireless mouse and keyboard without any driver install. In addition, while my initial downloads were through rj45 jack, the wireless setup was as painless as I've ever experienced. Linux has arrived. Dump 8 and go for it.

5 out of 5 eggs long battery life. works with linux 10/07/2012

This review is from: Logitech MK550 2.4Ghz Wireless Wave Keyboard and Mouse Combo - Black

Pros: plug and play in OpenSuse linux (11.4, 12.1, and 12.2). The OS recognizes the keyboard immediately. Even the volume and mute buttons work. Have not changed the batteries in the keyboard in almost 2 years of regular use. Iike the padded hand rest.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Gave the mouse to my wife and used logitech software to link keyboard with universal receiver for my M705 marathon mouse's universal receiver. Could not do this in Linux. Had to use Mac. My wife just replaced batteries in her mouse.

Slightly different layout for home/end/delete/page up/page down buttons. Had to get used to that as I use those buttons frequently. As a side note, if you don't use home and end regularly, give them a try in web navigation, spreasheets, and word processors. That along with ctrl + arrow keys can improve navigation via keyboard tremendously.
