View Full Version : [ubuntu] thinkpad x200 with ssd

January 20th, 2009, 09:30 AM

I'm looking to buy new laptop and thinkpad x200 with ssd seems as good choice because its small, have long battery time and should be ok performance.

However I'm wondering if anyone have experience of using it with ubuntu? and if there are any incompatibility problems?

As well I'm wondering how about ssd disks and ubuntu? are disk drivers good? any upside/downside of buying lapton with ssd and using ubuntu?

the last question, what file system I shout use ext4? or any other?

Thank you for your answer!

Sorry for the tardy response (which may now be irrelevant).

I have an X200s with SSD running 9.04 perfectly. The greatest complaint that I have is that I cannot find a convenient way of permanently disabling bluetooth but even that is only two button presses to turn it off.

I haven't upgraded to 9.10 because there were problems with it and I am happy with what I have but I intend to upgrade to 10.04 when it is available.

Some minor problems as bluetooth and some times not recognizing docking station stil exists. But otherwise I am super happy :D
