Re: Please guide me to a new exelent Laptop

A good advice Sector11 and PackRat

I will edit my posted requirements to fit this new idea. I just love the #! Waldorf I have on my HP and did not think about the obvious alternative. Now you gave me a good reason to upgrade to Janice and try It out smile

Thanks again Sector11

And come on people - Give me som hardware recommendations here big_smile

Consider a Thinkpad T540p configured with the 3K IPS screen. The FHD (1080p) screen is not IPS unfortunately.

Re: Please guide me to a new exelent Laptop

Thanks anonymous, a grate choice!!

I have been reading some threads about the subject (in secrecy) and Lenovo ThinkPad T540p seems to be a solid workhorse. A good candidate for sure!!

Re: Please guide me to a new exelent Laptop

@Head_on_a_Stick: Thank you for bringing some healthy panic into this thread yikes

I don't have a wired or wifi internet connection, only a mobile broadband USB-stick. And I don't know how to get that up and running without the convenience of nm-applet. And for me to do that from a netinstall with Debian core system could be quite interesting. Maybe I should rig up a camera, record the sequence, and post it on youtube with the subject: Stupid newbie gets kicked in the face by a hard'core' debian!!

Joke aside smile
I can probably do this, but I need people to point me in the right direction. That is why I did start this thread. I want to buy myself a new Laptop, a new companion for many years to come. I'm not an experienced Linux user, but I learn new things every day. And you guys are an incredible source of knowledge.

Thank you guys!!

Re: Please guide me to a new exelent Laptop

Now I have decided to go with Lenovo ThinkPad T540p or the HP ZBook. My conservative side pushes me towards T540p. But, because of my love and experience with the old one I'm having now, I'm drawn towards ZBook. Can someone please push me one way or the other? I'm struggling to decide  sad

Re: Please guide me to a new exelent Laptop

Just remember that Both are made in China, so the difference in Quality isn't there.

I'd go T540p personally though because of the backlit keyboard! Which is unbelievably helpful, especially if you type a lot!
