[Discuss] A laptop for Linux

I have a fairly recent T-series. T540p.  When I have to, the pad works once
I got used to it.   I saw where Lenovo is taking a hint and going back to
'real buttons' on the trackpad, so I would look for that before jumping.  I
just didn't know better and trusted Lenovo to not do something to far off
the beaten path. I use it mainly in a docking station with a regular USB
mouse.  I also do dual-boot using Linux Mint as my main OS but to help
diagnose issues for friends, I keep Winders installed and try to boot and
update it at least monthly.
