I hope you can get a working system. Embedded Displayport in laptops is problematic at this time. The Dreamcolor screen is really gorgeous on this machine which is why I bought it but it does use eDP.

There are still some other issues with the hardware support under Linux too. (e.g. the kernel config I sent included USB 3.0 support via xhci_hcd and it's unstable so you might want to shut it off).
