What Laptops Would You Like To See Tested On Linux?
I own an 1 year old Dell Inspiron (with an AMD dedicated card in complement to the intel hd graphics),
and it works well with Linux. The screen is full HD (15") and is of high quality.
If you take a high end laptop with intel Haswell, I imagine that for a few more money, you can get the same with a dedicated card (in complement to the intel hd graphics).
Buying such a laptop would allow you to make tests of Optimus or hybrid graphics (power comsumption, comparative performance to if the card was on a desktop pc).
I think the dedicated card has to be mid or high level (I don't understand the point of having a poor performance dedicated card).
HP Spectre 13-h200ef X2 (hybrid laptop and tablet)
The HP Spectre 13-h200 X2 is an interesting laptop and tablet (it's a fanless machine with a haswell intel processor and a fullHD 13"3 IPS touch screen). There are currently some backlight issue on linux though...
One of the most beautiful laptops, and quite a powerful one as well.
Ask away, I have one. Everythings great except I never figured out or cared enough to make the discrete card do jack, so I just shut it off with acpi_call. Any ideas? I imagine even if I got it rendering something though I'd be better off with the results from the Intel :P
