      My Lenovo Flex 15-2D has  touchscreen and the grandkids like it. I'm more a mouse/keyboard type of guy. I like the "Intel Centrino" type notebooks as you are pretty sure everything will work with Linux out of the box. Looks like you have a good travel companion there.

      Very cool. I had never heard of her before (on screen or with radio signals) but its nice the EFF recognized her for the important contribution she gave us.

      Very cool. I didn't know that it had a touchscreen. Nice that it worked out of the box too. I have yet to have a laptop with a touchscreen. Mostly because I wouldn't really have much of a use for one and most of the ones that I see have a display like a mirror. I have looked at the Yoga series in the past but never pulled the trigger. Thanks for confirming that they are nice little linux machines.

      Just about have this notebook how I want it now. Touchpad tap working, wifi working, conky set up, Firefox synced. All the hardware worked out of the box so far including the touch screen. Helps to use the non-free firmware version of Debian netinstall iso. I even worked out that kdeconnect will work between any 2 devices on a network, not just phone and computer. Pretty neat and very handy for this setup. This thing has almost never been used and looks brand new. I checked with smartctl and the system drive shows only 1142 power-on hours. I was pretty happy when i managed to install Debian on this without much fuss, now I'm really impressed! 😎 roger@yoga-brain:~$ inxi -Fz System:   Host: yoga-brain Kernel: 4.19.0-8-amd64 x86_64 bits: 64   Desktop: KDE Plasma 5.14.5 Distro: Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster) Machine:   Type: Convertible System: LENOVO product: 20G80001AU   v: ThinkPad Yoga 11e 3rd Gen serial: <filter>   Mobo: LENOVO model: Intel powered classmate PC v: SDK0J40700 WIN   serial: <filter> UEFI: LENOVO v: R0AET37W (1.20) date: 01/19/2018 Battery:   ID-1: BAT1 charge: 41.7 Wh condition: 41.7/42.0 Wh (99%) CPU:   Topology: Quad Core model: Intel Celeron N3150 bits: 64 type: MCP   L2 cache: 1024 KiB   Speed: 1011 MHz min/max: 480/2080 MHz Core speeds (MHz): 1: 625 2: 976 3: 936   4: 1102 Graphics:   Device-1: Intel Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx   Integrated Graphics   driver: i915 v: kernel   Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.4 driver: modesetting unloaded: fbdev,vesa   resolution: 1366x768~60Hz   OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 400 (Braswell)   v: 4.5 Mesa 18.3.6 Audio:   Device-1: Intel Atom/Celeron/Pentium Processor x5-E8000/J3xxx/N3xxx Series   High Definition Audio   driver: snd_hda_intel   Sound Server: ALSA v: k4.19.0-8-amd64 Network:   Device-1: Realtek RTL8111/8168/8411 PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet   driver: r8169   IF: enp2s0 state: down mac: <filter>   Device-2: Intel Wireless 7265 driver: iwlwifi   IF: wlp3s0 state: up mac: <filter> Drives:   Local Storage: total: 119.24 GiB used: 5.79 GiB (4.9%)   ID-1: /dev/sda vendor: Samsung model: MZNTY128HDHP-000L1 size: 119.24 GiB Partition:   ID-1: / size: 56.59 GiB used: 5.76 GiB (10.2%) fs: ext4 dev: /dev/sda5   ID-2: swap-1 size: 4.14 GiB used: 0 KiB (0.0%) fs: swap dev: /dev/sda6 Sensors:   System Temperatures: cpu: 38.0 C mobo: N/A   Fan Speeds (RPM): cpu: 0 Info:   Processes: 159 Uptime: 45m Memory: 3.68 GiB used: 971.5 MiB (25.8%)   Shell: bash inxi: 3.0.32
