Some of the graphs portray highly accurate, useless information.

    The Phoronix site itself is pretty unbearable without an ad-blocker. Were it not for AdBlock Plus, I wouldn't visit the site at all. So, I'm not surprised at all that Larabel is selling out.

If I click "Continue", it proceeds with the install (which didn't happen a few weeks ago when I installed on my T530).

    So... still buggy, but at least not as bad as before. Next time I reinstall the T50 (probably in April, with the official release), it'll be with no swap partition

    What's the matter with just installing w/swap and deleting it afterwards?

    Nothing, except that it's an unnecessary step as a result of a bug in the installer. The point of a beta testing is to find/classify/fix bugs, is it not?

    Besides, if I took your approach, I'd also have to use gparted to extend the remaining partitions on the disk, after deleting the swap partition... or tolerate unused/unpartitioned space on an expensive SSD.
