Now I'm curious!
I don't know if they're different because of hardware, or if it's just drivers. Unfortunately the only device I have with one has two problems.

1) It runs Linux very poorly. It's a convertible, and a lot of the unique hardware causes issues in Linux. Sound doesn't work at all.

2) My girlfriend uses it for art since it has a built in stylus, so she uses it for digital sketching. She'd explode my face if I ruined it :D

Update on the Thinkstation S20.

I reinstalled using the Nvidia ISO and an odd occasional hang that I was seeing went away. It was an intermittent half-second lag that would crop up about every 15-20 seconds. Nothing awful but it's really nice that it's gone.

The back light hotkey no longer works for the keyboard. I haven't spent the time to figure out how to get that working yet. (open to suggestions)
Edit: It works

That didn't come across too well... put it in a code block next time!

Edit: That won't work either... slashes don't use the same spacing as letters. Screenshot?

Asus Vivobook Pro N580G.

Almost worked out of the box: had to disable secure boot in the BIOS (I guess related to the NVIDIA driver, which was also giving me troubles with Elementary OS) and the installation program did not warn me about that. Occasionally freezes while restarting, but besides that works flawlessly. I wonder about the fingerprint recognition spot in the touchpad, which I think is the only thing I've not tried...

Secure boot is something that almost everyone will have to contend with. It's actually mentioned in most every install guide and reference that exists for Pop. As for the restart issue... any errors? Anything specifically that seems to be causing a hiccup? We'd be happy to help you track it down!

Well, it seems that restart issues are related to GPU use for computing. From time to time something goes wrong with the GPU (again, just a guess, but possibly memory leaks unrelated to Pop) and then the restart is likely to freeze. But I don't see this as really problematic. Let me instead take the opportunity to mention that I'm having issues with the secondary HD: sometimes copying files from it to some external memory card or USB stick never finishes, but if I force unmounting the external card/stick then I can later check that the file was actually correctly copied. Could this be related to the fact that I did not format the secondary HD, so it is NTFS?

It's certainly possible. Linux NTFS drivers have gotten pretty darned good (I haven't run into any issues, but do hear others report issues on occasion), but NTFS is still not a preferred format.

Was using Arch Gnome/i3 before on XPS15 9650 and was frustrated with the bumblebee approach.. Got a 2nd hand Razer 15 and after much research installed Pop!_OS. Works like a charm, love the power management. Suspend/Hibernate didn't not work out of the box, had to tweak by adding a systemd unit (https://www.reddit.com/r/pop_os/comments/b5qolr/shutdown_and_suspend_problem/
) and adding a kernel parameter
Bash:
button.lid_init_state=open
. It seems all is running well.
Thanks for the hard work,
Lior

I built my PC just long enough ago that I've forgotten some of the hardware details. But here's some main ones I do remember:

MOBO: Asus B350
CPU: Ryzen 1700
GPU: RX580
RAM: Corsair DDR4 16GB

Hi all,

My old work (now bust) was giving away it's old laptops to its staff... So my flat mate, who has never owned a computer, now has a Dell Latitude 3580 running Pop LTS.

The thing runs beautifully. I was very surprised that the system passed all of my tests from install. The only thing that emerged didn't work from install so far (3 days) is that Netflix didn't work on Firefox. Her and her boyfriend were able to fix this within 5 minutes of a Google search however (something to do with Firefox and DRM).

What impressed me the most however is that the touch pad worked so much better than in Windows (I used to use this model in work). The track pad in Pop, I kid you not, works about as well as a Mac trac pad! How? Considering the manucturers of the hardware and original drivers would have had Windows in mind! Are the Linux track pad drivers just that much better than Windows now in general?

My personal rig also runs Pop but I will make a post about it anouther time.
