Screen problem I’m giving this laptop a provisional review of one star. It arrived looking good, but on its third boot-up, the screen began showing visual “static” in the form of little, jumping lines. As I worked with programs, the “static” became more pronounced and the screen would occasionally flicker and jump. At one point, the screen became completely unreadable, and I had to hit the power switch to first shut off, and then restore the screen.I’m working with Asus service on trying to resolve the problem. When we’ve come to a resolution, I’ll revisit this review and, I hope, adjust it positively.Update 7/15/15: After being walked through a few “textbook” problem solutions by a pleasant tech rep, it was agreed that the laptop would be returned to Asus for repair.

Everything work out of the box (for the most part), including the WiFi, printing (over wireless no less), and even the touch screen. This is a testament to both ASUS hardware and Linux software as to how far we’ve come with open source.That said, there are a couple of caveats:First, I had to go with the latest Xubuntu release because I couldn’t get things running with SecureBoot disabled. This does use UEFI firmware, so any distro you pick will need to implement shim.Second, the trackpad is a bit big/too sensitive for my liking. It could be that I have big hands, though the laptop is already pretty small. Either way this means that I will be typing sometimes and accidentally click somewhere else on the screen. Not a deal breaker by any means though. This is primarily…
