OK so spectre aside, can someone tlel me why I shouldn't get this laptop?
@mairin Actually, looks like they're making good progress reverse-engineering the Validity fingerprint reader:
@mairin Here in Brazil the options are scarce, but in the US, there are lots of laptops with linux pre installed. Even though you will certainly replace the existing system with fedora, I think it's a good idea to support linux laptops
I would also take a look on the latest AMD laptops. The GPU could be better
@mairin I've recently had problems with Lenovo.. I bought an X1 Yoga, and currently having battery issues. I've seen patterns with battery issues with Lenovo. I"m trying to fix my X1 right now. :( > $2k and I've had one warranty repair and battery problems less than 2 years. :(
I'm on my third Red Hat issued Lenovo in a row with issues where it randomly doesn't want to boot (at the Lenovo logo; doesn't even get to grub) and USB and other ports randomly die.
I had other problems with ThinkPads when I was at SUSE too, so if you count those IBM branded ones, it's *at least* half a dozen problematic Lenovo laptops by now.
