View Full Version : [ubuntu] Lenovo T520 on Linux install report

June 8th, 2012, 03:48 PM
I am using a T520 on Linux and it works great. All of the components worked out of the box.

Bumblebee also works with the Nvidia graphics, making battery use comparable to Linux.

The touchpad, function keys, wifi (Intel 6205) and bluetooth worked out of the box without any additional tweaks.

I have posted a blog entry with a few pictures and compared it to the Macbook series of laptops: http://www.sharms.org/blog/2012/06/lenovo-t520-vs-macbook-pro-air/

Let me know if you have any questions about how I configured it or any issues you have.

Great review. I'm also looking to buy the T520. Have you had any issues with graphics compatibility? Specifically with OpenGL.
