Oh yes, until recently I had an MSI GT72-6QD Dominator with both integrated graphics and an Nvidia GTX970M, but instead of optimus it had a physical button to switch gpu’s…
Had to do some janky stuff to get that button to work. Not even mentioning the rgb backlight of the keyboard.
Luckily I’ve been smart enough to sell the damn thing (don’t game much anyway) and get something with a decent battery life instead.
Now I’m running vanilla Arch on a Huawei Matebook D14 with an AMD Ryzen 3500u, and everything works great, except for the fingerprint sensor.
I also have an older Dell Latitude E7450 running EndeavourOS I3, which I keep around to learn some coding on. Keyboard on that laptop is just heavenly.
It might not be a Thinkpad, but it might be the next best thing.
Doesn’t matter what distro I throw at it, it all just runs fine.
As desktop PC I am running an 11 year old Dell T5500 workstation, that is actually my old workstation I used at my workplace.
It has a dual socket motherboard with 2 hexacore Xeon X5660’s, 32gigs of ram and a GTX 1650.
It’s a power hungry beast, but even despite her age, she still performs really well for graphical work.
Just recently treated her to a new EOS install too…
When I don’t want to sponsor the electric company, but I want to sit at my desk to do some light computing, I use my Odroid N2+. I’ve allways been running ArchlinuxARM on it with i3, but since yesterday it’s running the new release of EOS-Arm with only minor hickups
