"Small but Mighty", this 11" fanless laptop is designed for Linux and supports many distributions right out of the box. The manufacturer prides themselves in their open-source contributions and offers detailed support if necessary.
This laptop has the option of open-source (coreboot) firmware or closed-source (AMI). This guide was written primarily while using coreboot -- if you're using AMI please highlight any differences observed.
