Yes, last Debian GNU/Linux. No ethrnet card support on distro kernel. Too many users have problems with Fn-keys mode!!!

No BIOS options to change this! :(

Did Debian version 7.2.0 and the BIOS patch fix things? I'm looking to get model # 59373010 but I need it to run linux.

OpenSUSE 13.1 works like a rocket in this laptop. You'd forget windows.....
But initially just keep the graphics to UMA in the bios and later on u'd get drivers for the integrated graphics then u cn turn it back to switchable graphics.
