I'm looking at buying this Asus ZenBook, but find no resources talking about what challenges there are getting Linux, hopefully Ubuntu, running on there. Generally the ZenBooks rank really well for use with Linux, but this one has this weird touch pad that worries me. Anyone know anything about it?
Sorry, I don't. But why even bother with something weird like this? Why not buy something you know for sure works?
What product would that be? Lenovo Carbon X1 yes, at much higher price.
XPS. They ship with Linux.
Scott said he wanted a real GPU, not Intel's CPU integrated, for video editing.
XPS is small and neat (and an ergonomic disaster to work with IMHO) but doesn't have a real GPU.
Idk why you're assuming I meant a 13. The 15s have an NVIDIA card, same with the latitudes which also will ship with Linux. I'm not 100% sure if the XPS 15 ships with Linux I'd have to double check ( the latitudes will) but it works great on them. XPS also has a 17" model now.
Sorry, I was just assuming 13" since 13-14" was what Scott wanted at first.
The 15 is really like 14", the 13 is like 12". Because of the infinity display the body sizes are smaller than others.
