Lenovo Thinkpad x220
« on: June 28, 2019, 11:43:32 am »
I am currently running Peppermint 10 on a Lenovo Thinkpad x220. It runs fast and the only problem I had was screen tearing which was easily fixed by searching on this forum. I upgraded the hdd to a 240gb ssd and changed the screen to an ips display (as the old screen had terrible viewing angles). I also added a new battery. It's a great little machine now, and I'm really happy with it  :)

Thinkpads are nearly always great Linux machines :)

I have/had the same experience with HP. 8 on my 2013 HP Sleekbook and currently 10 on my HP All in one.
To Peppermint or not to Peppermint.
