After 3 hours talking to Dell tech support, they realised that it was impossible to install Ubuntu on it and I was left with no choice but to return it. With tech support I tried numerous combinations of secure boot secure boot, UEFI and legacy boot options. I find it ridiculous that this is listed as the best Ubuntu laptop. Ubuntu does not recognize the solid state drive on the XPS 15.
I have no idea where to get a good battery other than IBM and that may not be a sure thing for a replacement battery. 5 hours when new. 5 hours in my T41p notebook. This is with the same purchase rating specifications. I have found the IBM 5 battery is good for 6. Now I need another spare battery. (When new) The online purchase from Comptick. The main concern is the short life span of the electronic module in the Comptick. Com is good for about 4.
Recent developments for Wacom include the Cintiq Proand MobileStudio Pro. But it does take the Pro Pen 2, with 8,192 levels of pressure. The Cintiq Pro has not yet completely replaced the 13HD. The Cintiq Pro is like the 13HD and also comes in 15″ and will soon come in larger sizes as well.
I think you understand that finding the best Linux laptop is not as easy as. Gnome, and KDE are best when it comes to touchscreen support.
At 1/2 the price it would be a solid choice (assuming the coil whine is fixed). Basically, this is an okay-but-flawed laptop. It is not, however, a stunningly good laptop, just a slightly-better-than-average one. Dell often has specials that reduce the price by a few hundred dollars, so you might be able to pick one up for far less than I paid.
00 (before any coupon codes for more off). Anyway, I found a really good deal on an Inspiron 15 (3521) with the optional 17 Watt TDP Core i3 3227U (dual core CPU supporting 4 threads via HT), optional 6 cell battery and optional touch screen for 9. After applying a 30% off coupon code I had from subscribing to the mailing list for Dell Outlet, my price including tax and shipping came to only 7 (including a one year warranty with next business day on site service after remote diagnostics).
IOW, reaching across my desktop to try and “swipe” or touch something on the desktop (e. , the new Win 8. This is going to be an odd question, since I’ve never really liked the idea of a touch screen desktop operating system. X user interface does not seem very practical).

I only run windows because of office. Libre office does not work for me, if there is a way to get office 2016 on ubuntu that would be great since I get regular updates from office etc. I want ubuntu or dual boot, since I hate that Windows 10 basically spies on you and stuff. Hello, I have an HP Elitebook 8470P which I have tried several times to install ubuntu on this thing and for the life of me I cannot. I have tried WUBI and unetbootin and rufu and nothing.
Acer model sits in the middle of the Chromebook market. It is nowhere near a professional-level laptop but it’s a good option if you want to have Ubuntu on a laptop for working on small tasks on the go. Unlike cheaper notebooks, it has an Intel Core processor and a larger 15. Yes, it is a more performant laptop but it is still a good option only if you’re OK with its limited 32GB drive and 4GB of RAM.
Well, after I specifically told my mom to not get me a touchscreen laptop, she got me a touchscreen laptop. What distro has support for.
