Depending on the distro and your model thinkpad, there may be "some assembly required". For example, I run slackware so getting the trackpad to run required editing some config files. Battery life may or may not be as good as under windows, depending on what your distro has setup for the T420. It comes down to your google-fu and your willingness to get things working right.

Just post here with any questions you might have. On a sad note, if you have a T420 with the discrete Nvidia GPU, don't count on the GPU working properly under linux.

But don't let that stop you. Running linux is one way to truly know and own your machine, and keep it running for the foreseeable future. It's gratifying to get your install running nice and tight, without bullshit bloatware, microsoft spyware, ads bugging you in the start menu, and the OS constantly trying to get its fingers into your wallet.

$25 for a new mobo on ebay. That will help get rid of bios gremlins which you might have.

Correction: Nvidia's support for Linux is dogshit. Linux support for just about everything is companies open sourcing their work, or dedicated volunteers working in their spare time to circumvent asshole hardware design.

Nvidia fuck you and your neural meme networks
Literally all that machine learning don't work. I have experience, i am using linux for 3 years as main system.
But installing:
>cuda toolkit
is hard and often fucks up, even on ubuntu
>cunn + torch
Cuda neutral networks i tried 4 fucking times, even bother to install it clean fedora, not a single chance.
>nvidia-docker
docker is kinda broken, but this fucking thing is just unbelievable it is beyond mess.
I just lost about 20 hours. Only to be able to run deepdream on nvidia-docker, neural-style don't work.

Good luck with those self driving cars

>the issue is apparent with gsync displays with refresh rates at or above 144hz. though there are a few posts from users with 60hz displays and non gsync displays.


even their hotfix driver for it doesn't even fix it.

THOSE HIGH QUALITY DRIVERS
