[Discuss] A laptop for Linux

Yeah, I love me some Thinkpads.  Used them at work for 10 years now, but 
I have to run Windows there.  I just picked up a T420 on ebay for home 
use, Linux (Mint) just works.  I bought this one to replace my T60 which 
is still running Linux just fine but the fan is getting loud, again.  I 
replaced it once, didn't want to go through the hassle of repairing a 
laptop again.
