I am scanning the market for a new laptop, and I would like to get a laptop with which I can run TrueOS as best as I can. Mind you, I am not looking for a good laptop for FreeBSD 11.0, like here:
I am looking for a laptop for TrueOS, which means that a recent intel GPU will not be a problem. (I expect the remaining tearing problems in newer chipsets to disappear as the drm-next branch evolves).
I would like WiFi and suspend/resume to work. I would also prefer the laptop to be an ultrabook, but this is not a strict requirement.
I am under the impression that many TrueOS developers use a Thinkpad X1 Carbon 3rd gen. This would be perfect for me, but it is unfortunately not possible to order it any more, at least according to Lenovo. You can currently buy only the 4th generation. Has anyone experience with that?
Or has anyone a good laptop suggestion for me, please?
PS: I have to say that I really like the spirit of TrueOS. With constantly evolving stuff, a small and vibrant community, and even having to pick the hardware carefully, it reminds me of Linux years ago
