Working well for me. The only thing I noticed that didn't automatically install were the quick buttons. (Which I never used anyways.)
Just a forewarning. Anyone who uses this laptop should immediately make sure your BIOS is updated.

Tested injection and several other tools. The built-in wireless card is a Intel Pro wireless AGN4965. This card has a pretty good range for a built in card.

Hard drive install dual boot.
