I have a new computer, more precisely an Asus N750J, and I would like to check the compatibility of the hardware with Linux before installing (dual boot is the plan), to be prepared and prevent problems and disappointments. I have already seen that I'll probably need to install Bumblebee, but I don't have a specific checklist so that I can be sure I'm ready to go for the installation. I'd like to do this as fast and painlessly as possible.
The plan is to install Debian, I don't have a strong preference on Debian Stable or Testing (probably testing will be a better option).
The details in italics are specific for my case, but I think this is probably a fairly general question. Detailing the answer may be unfeasible for a site of short answers as SE, if so, please provide references or pointers to general guidelines.
If there are details missing or the question has to be modified to suit better the format please tell me and I'll change whatever needs to be changed.
