Quirks

Sound

Alsa bug 3394 : No audio output can be heard through the speakers. Only audio through the headphone jack works. No known workaround.

Video

Fedora bug 285001 : TV out needs to be disabled (xrandr --output TV --off) or else it'll always detect something connected and adjust resolution accordingly. A long term solution is to create a dummy monitor in xorg.conf and assign the TV output to it.

Wireless Kill Switch

The bios will allow you to configure the kill switch for killing any combo of wifi, cellular, and bluetooth. However killing the wifi seems to make the iwl4965 kernel module unhappy and require reloading. Therefor I have it configured to just kill bluetooth (I have no cellular), and that works fine.
