Everything works well. Some small inconsistencies between the VMs in 
terms of HiDPI scaling

but that is more an application issue rather than qubes specifically.

Suspend, Audio, Brightness all work.

Shutting down takes ages, and I often have to force shut-down after ~5m, 
though I see other

users with the same problem so unknown if hardware specific.

Install had to be done using BIOS/Legacy method, install USB would not 
boot otherwise.

Overall really happy with it :)
