500 GB(slow) hard drive
4 GB of RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000 and Radeon HD 7500M through open-source drivers and PRIME(obly for games)

Everything works fine, don't remember having any issues. On the other hand Windows 10 was crashing every week or so.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Machine: Lenovo ThinkPad T480
├─ Processor: Intel Core i5-8250U @1.60GHz
├─ Memory: 16GB DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM
├─ Storage: 256GB SSD (PCIe M.2 2280)

Most things working perfectly out of the box. KVM was disabled by BIOS by default (Fix: Turn on VT in BIOS). xbacklight for screen brightness control (required xf86-video-intel) and xbindkeys to configure multimedia keys.

I also have Arch running on an older Lenovo G770 just fine.
