Hello all, I've recently had quite an eye-opener attempting to run a stable system on a new Lenovo Ideapad U410 i7 8GB Nvidia GE 610M. I'm new to installing Ubunutu but have successfully been enjoying two machines with 12.04 that my friend put on for me. All my reading and research of late has shown that I'm not alone in experiencing difficulties with some of the new tech out there including Optimus, Intel SRT and SSDs. I'm going to take my U410 back and am now looking into a new laptop with more foresight, and honestly a little hestiation. My questions to the community:
In your opinions, are many of these new laptops and their techs, as mentioned, causing issues with Linux or is it more a combination of my particular model coupled with my experience.
