I got the 2017 model, which runs Debian unstable. As far as I can tell,
everything works out of the box. Very happy with it.

No complaints about the keyboard. And it has a proper row of F1-F12 keys
(which dual-function in combination with the Fn key).

There are tree keys that I don't know what they're supposed to do: the
F9 "Flower", the F12 five-pointed star and there is a key with a
swinging scissor/PrSc key.
