    Phoronix: What Laptops Would You Like To See Tested On Linux?

    If you have been curious how a particular laptop is performing on Linux, now is your chance to voice your request as I will be buying two laptops this week for Phoronix testing and benchmarking under Linux...

    Dell m3800

    Dell xps 13 sputnik with haswell

    The latter comes with Linux preinstalled. The first is very powerful, but the qhd screen might not work very well with Linux.

    Just don't pick another Apple notebook.

      Dell's XPS 12 2-in-1 Ultrabook. Either with Sputnik or maybe lets see how the OpenSUSE fares on this hybrid toy.

      Also: i concur, skip Apple

      Thanks,

        AMD Kaveri

        Won't you wait for AMD's Kaveri-equipped laptops? I'd vote for whatever small HP ProBook that comes with it. Admittedly, with AMD's execution and delivery skills as of late, it may be another 6-9 months before the laptops are on sale :-(

          HP Elitebook G1: strong, lightweight, inexpensive, very easy maintenance. The 840 model has an Haswell i7 and a switchable Intel / Radeon and is full HD.

              Asus VIVOBOOK

              The cheap and full of features (touch) "ultrabook" from asus. I really love them, but never saw them running linux.

                It is not a laptop but it has laptop hardware.

                I was thinking about Intel NUC Kit D54250WYK.

                  Laptops from the HP envy line would be interesting.
                  (15 and 17 inch)

                  Comparison of laptops with Core i7 and only builtin Intel graphics and laptops with Core i7 with discrete card.
                  Also comparison of laptops with Core i5+builtin Intel graphics and with discrete graphics card.

                  Laptops with the new APU's from AMD.

                    Fujitsu T904

                    This is the most advanced convertible at the moment, especially cause of its screen resolution. It were awseome to find out how it performs, also from a touch point of view.

                      Thinkpad T540p with a 3K 2880x1620 display.

                      I'm thinking about getting one of these.
                      Unfortunately, it comes with Optimus and there is no AMD graphics option for these models.

                        My 0.05

                        I would like to see this one tested with linux on it:

                        http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/p...3G-K02US-specs

                        AMD APU on it (rebranded), very light and thin. It's just a pitty about the 1336x768 screen...

                        It's about the only AMD "ultrabook" I can find.

                            Router with DD-WRT and Open-WRT firmware

                            I want to see performance (speed and latency) for Wifi-Router with DD-WRT and Open-WRT firmware.
                            Steam Stream feature depends upon network speed and latency.

                            I want to see how the 3rd-party Linux based firmware perform.

                              Well, seeing as I just bought a new laptop...
                              1. I did want benchmarks of the new MBP 13" to see if the 28W TDP processor is actually much faster than 15W Haswell cores (e.g. at compiling)
                              2. Fujitsu S904 and T904 look interesting, though they're not out yet
                              3. Dell XPS 13 will come with Linux but seems like just another unintersting ultrabook once you look beyond that
                              4. Dell M3800 is powerful but enourmous. The XPS15 may be more interesting as a mobile workstation, but again not out yet (I think).
                              5. I just bought a Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro, which CPU wise is just another Haswell ultrabook, but interesting to play with and has very good Linux driver support (only real issue is battery life is only about 5 of the advertised 9 hours and occasionally going into standby mode fails)
