Re: Laptops which run Arch

I use a Lenovo Ideapad 320-15ABR which runs well. I do, however, need to configure the kernel to make my touchpad work.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Just switched from HP 6460b to HP 8470p. I have to say, it's really a reliable workstation!
I wanted a USB port that could charge my phone or anything when the laptop was off, my old HP 6460b doesn't have the port and HP 8470p has that feature. And I heard that someone replaced the motherboard of 6460b with 8470p and it worked flawlessly. So I decided to buy a 8470p motherboard.
The merchant was so generous that she sent a 8470p model with the screen that didn't work and SATA port, CPU port, keyboard port, RAM port and WIFI port to be inserted. SO I purchased a 8470p screen from the merchant and newly bought CPU i7-3687U and inserted other needed things from 6460b to 8470p.
It's much faster than 6460b!

Re: Laptops which run Arch

I have an Lenovo legion Y520, Intel core i7 7700HQ, 8 gb ram, hdd 1 Tb, video nvidia GTX 1050 ti.
Now I'm using this with arch. I use plasma as DE or i3wm. For i3wm I've installed Nvidia and Intel video driver, with only nvidia doesn't boot.


I have also an MacBook pro mid 2010, Intel core 2 duo with 8 Gb ram, ssd 250 gb, Nvidia 320m. Also this with arch and plasma or i3wm

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Installed arch on Lenovo Thinkpad E480. i5-8250u, 16G, iGPU 620UHD, intel ac3165 wireless.
It looks like all works pretty good out of the box except of the finger print reader but that is something I didn't check and tbh don't care about.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Lenovo 500-ISK works perfectly. All features work without special configuration. I do get an ACPI error on boot but it doesn't seem to effect anything and it is a known issue https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=198167#c60
Here's my error for reference:

[    0.003333] ACPI: Core revision 20170728

Here is the only place I could find listing accurate specs https://www.cnet.com/products/lenovo-70 … hdd/specs/
I have the following differences:
240gb m.2 Corsair ssd
1Tb 7200rpm hdd
12 gb of ram
There is no subwoofer on any version of this model...

While this my response is off topic, I think it's important to mention that if you're using intel graphics, the xf86-video-intel driver is quite buggy, and that uninstalling it and removing any intel config files in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d, and just using the xorg modsetting drivers, will often resolve many video problems. It did for me across 3 systems.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Anyone with a Raven Ridge laptop? I'm interested in a high-end laptop with AMD processor since I read they are very good in compiling code. But it seems that for now almost no manufacturer has put out Raven ridge laptops (except for HP, which anyway uses a single channel memory which impairs the overall performance). Has anyone more precise information about available Raven Ridge laptops and eventually how they work with Arch? Thanks.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Asus x301a, my friend just gave it to me for free when my old laptops motherboard got fried and as a student couldn't afford anything. He was complaining that Windows 7 runs too slow on this piece of shoe of a computer.
But actually I've grown to love this old piece of hardware and as I am running arch linux on it the specs are more than enough... keyboard has decent feel to it, battery lasts about 3h. Only problem I haven't solved yet is battery indicator. Neither xfce(my safemode lol) or conky running in bspwm can't pull it. I did look into it and the /proc/ file just shows 100% battery even when I'm sure that it's not.

As you can see the system uses less than 200mb of ram when in idle. Once i run firefox the usage goes up to 1.5gb. I've never run out of RAM though, only once when a broken python loop filling an array ate it all tongue.

The thing that genuinely suprised me was the fact that even though I have 7200rpm HDD on this setup, I haven't even considered moving to SSD since the boot time is incredibly fast.

EDIT: I keep reading about people struggling with bluetooth. I wish I had problems with bluetooth but this laptop model does not have it built in yikes. Small dongle did the job when I really needed it but as this model has only 2 USB ports I refuse to give one away tongue.

Mod note: Thanks for embedding a smaller version, however as it's still a bit too large, I switched it to URLs -- V1del

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Lenovo G580 & HP 635M.

HP 635M is a bit too slowly to run gnome 2.8 smoothly.
We will replace it within the next months with a Laptop with better specs because (as a daily working guy) I'm not really interested to maintain different desktop environments.

Everything works fine out the box, excellent battery life, zero kernel configuration. Only change is to set the touchpad to basic mode in the bios.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Dell Latitude E6410
Intel Core i5-560M
8GB DDR3-1333 RAM
Nvidia Quadro NVS 3100M
120GB Patriot Torch LE SSD
1TB 5400RPM Toshiba HDD (in DVD drive slot)
1440x900 display
Backlit keyboard
Alps touchpad and pointing stick

This laptop works almost perfectly, it would be perfect if not for one major problem. With the default nouveau Nvidia open source graphics drivers, the laptop works perfectly most of the time but whenever DPMS is activated (e.g. the display sleeps) something happens where the display stops getting signals but does not turn off. This leads to having a very strange hardware issue when it is turned on, with the display getting a grey border around the edges and flickering white lines on the whole screen (stronger at the edges). This effect appears even on a restart, in BIOS, and when in TTY.

The only solution that I have found is to install nvidia-340xx on Arch.

The laptop also needs a very specific version of the Nvidia drivers on Windows. This issue happens on Windows with drivers newer than the Dell A08 update. The A08 update is the only version that I have found to not have this issue.
