Re: Laptops which run Arch

Most likely it's here already but I use a ThinkPad t480, only thing I have not got working is the fingerprint censor, but Ive not made an attempt so it probably works fine.  Suspend to ram works out of box, and Ive enjoyed arch and previously manjaro and Ubuntu on this machine for several years.  Soon as the laptop arrived windows was erased, I think I only booted into windows once to create a recovery USB and then installed Ubuntu.  I've recently migrated to Arch from Manjaro and it has been very smooth sailing.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Brand new to linux, the head IT guy at work runs Arch, which is funny cause I didn't know that till I started talking to him about my plans to revive a bios locked 845 G7 we have at work since I could get it dirt cheap as scrap (I work at a refurbishing outfit, we refurb a ton of business laptops) Had to learn how to remove, program, and resolder the bios chip, on top of learning how to install Arch and navigate linux for the first time. Love the dang thing. Had no idea how much I was going to enjoy using linux. Quickly starting to convince some of my other coworkers to do the same thing I did and find a perm locked amd ryzen laptop since our scrap value on them is utter garbage tier (i got the laptop itself for 20 bucks. Throw in the ram and nvme drive and i'm out the door at 80 bucks for a laptop that still technically has a warranty till the end of the year)

Re: Laptops which run Arch

I'm using Lenovo Y540

It's a sleek gaming laptop without the colors and style you usually find in gaming laptops.

it's a bit old but good performance overall, and the support for features is very good with exception to some issues with Nvidia graphics which I believe is normal smile

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Asus ROG Zephyr G14 (2023) (GA402NV). I wish I could say it's been a good experience but unfortunately there are a litany of issues most of which have been documented elsewhere.

Things which have recently started working and that I largely consider to be stable

* The laptop doesn't freeze randomly anymore which it initially did and I was on the verge of sending it back.
* Built-in Wifi (MT7922) is working stably now, initially I was using a USB dongle.

Things which don't work:

* Suspend/resume doesn't work. Suspend just immediately triggers a resume whether in terminal, X11 or Wayland.
* Built in bluetooth (MT7922). Wifi works but bluetooth support is absent
* Speakers don't work (or rather, only the tweeters work)
* Microphone doesn't work
* Displayport and HDMI via thunderbolt doesn't work.

I'm persevering as it's a nice laptop but I'm afraid I can't recommend it to anyone as a Linux device.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Hi, I'm running Arch on a DELL XPS 15 9530. The new one that is, 2023.

I started with Win 11, installed ubuntu alongside later. I couldn't get horizon-client running smoothly on both Win 11 and Ubuntu. Issues with scaling on my second Hidpi monitor. Decided to try Arch on it, which is my Fav distro.
Had to adjust my BIOS settings before installing Arch: TPM, secure boot and some DELL and Microsoft BIOS stuff. Unchecked all that silly stuff.
After that, a very smooth install. Luckily DELL uses Intel peripherals.
Dual graphics Intel, Nvidia. Installed Nvidia driver on the LTS kernel to try out and seems to work fine with prime-run.
[Knocking on wood] Very stable laptop, can get into my work environment with vmware-horizon-client without the hazzle I had with Win 11 and ubuntu. No problems with my two monitors.

It's a very quiet laptop, beautiful screen. Very quick, but also very expensive.

Heheh, yeah... the only reason I didn't get more than 64GiB of RAM in my new Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon 11th Generation is because 64GiB was the maximum they allowed.  It's a Christmas gift from my wife, so it's been sitting in a corner of my office back in the box after I ran memtest86+ and nvme sanitize, and I won't be able to install Arch on it until December 25, after we've all opened our presents and we can go off to do our own thing.

I definitely will post here on this topic once I get it installed!  I'm gonna go balls out and set up UKI with Secure Boot.

Only 16GiB 'cos it was on special offer and I don't need any more. Not bothered with SecureBoot (yet).

EDIT: it is a 165Hz display but I've knocked it down to 60Hz to prevent artefacts in Firefox, 165Hz works fine in games. Related: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/2352

Awesome performance. I most of the time put it on power-save mode (even when charging)
because of how much power Arch can get out this laptop.

Re: Laptops which run Arch

Hi all,

Host: Vivobook_ASUSLaptop M1605YA_M1605YA 1.0
Kernel: 6.6.7-arch1-1
Uptime: 1 hour, 31 mins

Shell: zsh 5.9
Resolution: 1920x1200
DE: Hyprland
WM: sway
Theme: Arc-Dark [GTK2/3]

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5825U with Radeon Graphics (16) @ 4.546GHz
GPU: AMD ATI 03:00.0 Barcelo

Keep up the good work, devs.  And best wishes to everyone for 2024!

Finally got to install Arch on this new ThinkPad.  Had to do some digging to get everything working, like sound (first time using Pipewire).  Only thing that doesn't work is the laptop brightness control, and the cause is my only regret with this laptop.  When I ordered this, I got it with the OLED screen (which doesn't have a backlight, and reducing the brightness does nothing for power consumption);  by the time I had customized it they alowed the OLED screen to have the Linux-compatible webcam (contrary to what the Arch wiki states).  The main regret is the OLED screen is murder on battery life.  With the IPS screen, reviews said this laptop gets 12-14 hours of battery life.  With the OLED screen I get about half that.  Still not bad compared to the one hour my old laptop got.  I have installed tlp so when the power is disconnected it automatically goes into low-power mode, which extends the battery life by about two hours compared to balanced.  Perhaps more tweaks are in order.

Suspend to ram seems to work, but I haven't put it through a complete test.  I'm using Unified Kernel Images with Secure Boot and a LUKS2 container on disk, and the top-level Btrfs volume is within the LUKS container;  that seems to be working just fine.  The only other issue I ran into while installing this laptop is fwupd did something to a TPM register, so a reboot wouldn't automatically unlock my LUKS container.  Like an idiot I didn't take a photo of the recovery key, only stored it inside the LUKS volume.  I had to restart the installation from scratch, and took a photo of the recovery key the second time.  Contrary to expectation, a QR code was not output, so I didn't get to use that with systemd-cryptenroll --recovery-key.
