    Dell Latitude or Lenovo Thinkpad?

    Currently I'm looking at Latitude E5530, and Lenovo Thinkpad T530.

    Which will work better with Ubuntu?

    I'm not sure about the Latitude or Thinkpad but I am running it on a older Dell Inspiron 1521. It runs great but the only thing I have to do is load the right driver for the wifi.

    I would go for the Thinkpad. i have owned a few IBMs/Lenovos and i just think the quality of the hardware is much better than the dell.

    I currently have a Dell E5420 and it feels so cheap (it was not cheap for what it is!)

    Lenovo/IBM all the way!

    the 1080p LCD is a 95% gamut screen and is superior to the 1600x900
