E-Series Latitudes seem made for Peppermint (or any other Linux really) .. it's why I have 6 of them :)

Best laptops I've ever owned, and I've had plenty newer models.

Oh nearly forgot .. Welcome to the forum :)

Welcome aboard, dgregory   :)

E-Series Latitudes seem made for Peppermint (or any other Linux really) .. it's why I have 6 of them :)

Best laptops I've ever owned, and I've had plenty newer models.

Dittos for D-Series Latitudes. That's why I have 2 of them (regular duty and military-spec ATG).

I have run my consumer-grade D-620 Latitude 24/7/365 for YEARS - and I don't mean running idle - it's a bot. Only maintenance required is blowing out the 'Arizona dust bunnies' with my air compressor, once or twice a year. Same with the accessory laptop cooling pad.

BTW, speaking of laptop cooling pads (which I also run 24/7/365) - there are a LOT of stinkers out there.

While this isn't the place for a cooling pad review; the current cooling pad that I'm running has worked a treat. It has remained quiet (no bearing noise yet) and keeps my Latitude cool - even when packed with dust.

If anyone needs a long-lasting, quality laptop cooling pad, at a descent price:

Just saying...   ;)
