Been a while since I had a computer related post! Got a new Thinkpad today!
Got a brand new ThinkPad X1 Carbon (3rd Gen.) and this thing is awesome! It came with Windows 8.1 but I blew that away to install Fedora Linux 21. I opted for the i7 processor and 8GB of RAM with a 128GB solid state drive, along with the 14″ WQHD 2560×1440 display. It’s super light, doesn’t make a sound, is super thin, and with Intel’s new revision of chips uses very little power…even with linux the battery life is pushing about 8 hours. They claim 10 with Windows…I never had it on enough to tell with Windows.
Here’s a few pictures I took of it while I was still at work…note the key fob to my car for scale:
