Webcamera - worked right out of the box
SD card reader - worked out of the box
Sound - works out of the box
Nvidia gpu - needs work, see details below
Power savings - able to get comparable times as windows with a few simple steps, see details below
Hot keys - Keyboard backlight, volume works. Screen brightness does not work, workaround possible
