Will this run pretty much out of the box with Arch?

Would the gfx support beryl and would the wifi and bluetooth work?

Re: Acer Aspire 5684WLMi

Gfx and beryl: yes, with XGL or latest nVidia driver.
Wifi: yes, with drivers in vanilla (and arch) kernel.
Bluetooth: You wrote nothing about the BT adapter...

You may experience some trouble if Your model has a built-in ENE card reader, or an Ali OrbiCam built-in webcam as there are no drivers for them around (afaik).
