Re: Laptops which run Arch

MSI GT72S 6QE Dominator Pro G.  Just a beast of a laptop.  Also have a Stinkpad T400, with a 64G ssd drive in it and 4Gb's of ram.  It does alright.  Actually better than alright.  I don't need anything for space on it as I'm using ssh to do simple file sharing between the two.  (ok there may be a media server running as well as some other goodies)

Arch runs quick and stable and without issues on both machines.  Arch is the only OS installed on the T400, however the MSI does have an obscene amount of drive space and I have several 'distros' on several partitions.  Oh yeah, perfectly functioning 60 M/sec wifi connection on both easily up and working!

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Currently having latest Thinkpad T470P with:
core i7-7700HQ
32GB RAM
Samsung SSD 960EVO 500GB
GeForce 940MX runing on Bumblebee

Currently everything that is crucial works (LAN, WiFi, sound, video outputs and acceleration, most inputs and outputs) but with few exceptions:
1. Sound from docking station does not work - it does not detect any new sound output and it is completely mute.
2. VAAPI video acceleration does not work - gives blank screen on gstreamer, so do not install gstreamer-vaapi package. Anyway 4k 60fps videos are running smoothly (with a mild usage of the CPU) and additional packages for video acceleration in this case are not needed.

this post was written when kernel 4.13 was on it's way and regarding the release notes new Realtek drivers are included in upcoming version, so I hope that problem with docking station soon will be solved.


4.12.12-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT @ Thinkpad T470P
