Some words about by new laptop: https://dogsbreakfast.xyz/post/p53/
Looking at the weather next week, this might be the last crisp park walk before it gets messy and muddy. #makehay
Pulled the trigger on a Lenovo p53. Hopefully arrives in a week. Now to figure out what distro to install... Stick with Linux Mint (what I've run for several years) or try something new. Apparently the touchpad, wifi and brightness controls likely require a 19.10 Ubuntu variant or making sure whatever I pick gets updated to a 5.3 kernel (yes apparently hardware support hurdles are still a thing).
@randynose It would. But now seriously considering a Lenovo P53. It's configurable with everything I want. It's on sale (but still pricey). It's old school in appearance (tank like) but reviews are very good.
@randynose Hmm. Seems like the 5 series precisions cannot be configured with a numpad (that's dumb for what's supposed to be a workstation machine). You can spec up a 3 series with a numpad to the same performance but it seems to end up way more expensive. :-|
