    Phoronix: Last Call To Participate In The 2017 Linux Laptop Survey

    This is your last chance to participate in the 2017 Linux Laptop Survey. There's nearly twenty-thousand submissions so far, but the survey is expiring at the end of day Thursday...

    Thanks for the reminder, I had to do my survey twice. First time just before submitting my system froze due to this issue https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=99295

    If people prioritized fixing and back-porting regressions, that would be great. (my dev environment does not work on mainline kernels)

      Honestly, I've had pretty good luck regarding laptops. The only ones I've really had trouble with were based on ARM or Bay Trail chipsets. However all that being said, you might be able to presume that I'm not exactly doing anything too strenuous on a laptop. For me personally, an i3 is the most processing power I need, and if I need any more I'd rather use a desktop.

        My Clevo-based laptop works well with Linux. Branded as "Hasee", it's very cheap in Renminbi.

          My heavy workload is now running in virtualized guests on my workstation in my house.

              Virtual machines are the solution to that issue on Windows land too, where each and every development software of each device vendor loves to fill the system of baroque crap, and the only way to have a decent workstation is to keep them in their own VM.

                You are one of the very few people who knows what an i3 is. Most people only know about i5 and i7. I've got a bunch that thought i5 were the low end.

                    I thought about it.

                    The bloody thing has no "END" key. How on earth are am I supposed to write code with it?

                    £1500 machine made completely useless for the cost of 1 fucking key...
