New Thinkpad! Fedora 21! Manual Settings!

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:
