    No problems running Ubuntu 17.04 on new Lenovo Ideapad 110-15isk

    Greetings,$248 from Best Buy
    Lenovo 110-15isk
    All Intel System with 1Terabyte Hard Drive, 4 Gig RAM, 15.6 in Display, Bluetooth, WIFI, HDMI
    Result of install is "Purrfect".

    What works = WIFI, Bluetooth, HDMI, F-keys, USB3, USB2
    What doesn't work = nothing.

    How I installed.
    Zapped Windows 10
    In BIOS Changed UEFI to Legacy.
    Moved USB/DVD to first boot order.
    Used 17.04 USB Startup Disk
    Enabled Proposed in Updates which gave me the 4.10 kernel, Nice!

    900 Meg /Boot
    5 Gig swap
    15 Gig /Root
    956 Gig /Home
    Designated the 256Meg EUFI Partition (which i didn't delete) for the reserved boot sector .

    Boot time from the 5600 RPM HD is 3.56sec Kernel, 13.5sec userspace
    Dislikes = funky right shift key is hard to accept. Everything else is nice.

    Opinion of Zesty
    On this I have to eat some humble pie. Zesty on a new modern system is just great. I even like the Gnome Software Center that I bad mouthed in an earlier post. Everything is fast and crisp with no apport errors popping up.

    I have not tested Unity 8 so far. Still getting my basic needs setup in Unity 7.
    This is a nice computer if you need a cheap fix. I will need to remap the right shift key though.

    I recommend that you do not enable proposed during the development cycle.

    Greetings,
    @jbicha, Thanks, I appreciate your well deserved concern about proposed. However I have been running every dev version since Natty with proposed enabled. A few reinstalls never hurt anybody. It shortens the learning curve. My post has more to do with sharing my testing experience than looking for advice. But your fears about Proposed are well founded. Not for someone who can't do a retro for sure. Also, I've never lost data with my partition scheme. Basically using the same "Home" that I started with years ago. The boot partition is set to 900 Meg so I have room for RC kernels. My old Toshiba Laptop lasted seven years and every upgrade used the same Home partition,
