I am considering purchasing a Thinkpad T450 for $ 450 to run Uberstudent as my main/sole OS. I was wondering if anyone on here has experience running Uberstudent with a T450. If so how does it run, are there any issues to be aware of? If there are serious issues that I should be aware of are there any other laptops within that price range that I should consider purchasing. Thanks to every who responds in advance I really appreciate the advice.

You are safe to purchase this laptop for running UberStudent.

Ubuntu, upon which UberStudent is based, has a certification system. Your T450 is certified to work excellently with Ubuntu (and really any other recent Linux system, since drivers are contained in the Linux kernel or are available otherwise). This means that a T450 should work excellently with UberStudent.

For more info see http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/har ... 501-16493/

After you install UberStudent, please run the program from Applications menu > System > Software > Driver Manager and install the proprietary drivers, if any, that it recommends to you, and you should have a smooth experience. In the unlikely event that wireless does not immediately work, plug in a LAN cord to take this step and wireless should then work perfectly once you've installed the drivers and rebooted.
