I’m using a Lenovo Thinkpad E450, Intel i5 model which I bought in June, 2016. Debian is currently installed on it.
- Intel Core i5-5200U Processor
- 4 Gigabyte 1600MHz DDR3L Ram
- 1 Terabyte 5400 rpm Hard Disk Drive
- 14” 1366x768 HD Display
- Integrated Intel Graphics and dedicated Radeon R7 M260 Graphics
Since, the time I bought it, I’ve had following issues:
- Webcam drives not available for Linux so native webcam applications like Cheese do not work. This issue was resolved in newer kernels.
- On Centos 7.4 (1708 build), 3.10.0-693 series kernels giving Kernel Panic due to AMD gpu. This bug was already resolved in Linux kernel 4 series, though 4.x kernels are not officially available on Centos 7 yet. Several workarounds are suggested in the RedHat discussion thread over the bug.
My home server is a Dell PowerEdge T30 Tower Server which I bought in August, 2017. It’s also running Debian.
