Decent laptop with linux

POSTED BY: antcj
Overall rating: 4 out of 5 4 out of 5

I bought this on the strength of previous laptops from this company. First off i would say if you are a gamer look elsewhere. But for general usage its perfect. Like a lot of users out there ,I think windows 8 is a pig. To that end and for other reasons i ditched windows a year ago. So can i put linux on this? YES. Mint 14 The only issue i had was installing wireless drivers, and the lan was not recognised either. re the lan upgrade to kernel 3.10 stable re wireless google 354439 ubuntu and you will find the answer Am i happy? yes very . nice fast laptop, that seems quicker than my 6 core desktop. build seems ok, as laptops go these days. Audio is not that great, bit tinny.
