Re: This is why you should not buy Asus !

Re: This is why you should not buy Asus !

Speaking of laptops, back in June I bought an on sale Dell which had 8GB and an I7-7500U, SSD in it. After bringing up Windoze to make sure it booted ok, I laid down the latest Linux Mint right over the top (felt good doing that BTW ) and ... everything worked. I can't find one think that isn't working (and is still working great). Wifi works much better than my older laptop. I was pleasantly surprised. As for the touchpad, we dislike it intensely. Finally I said enough is enough and I found a way to disable that, and now just use a wireless mouse with it. Not sure what brand Dell uses as the mainboard, but it sure is Linux friendly!

Re: This is why you should not buy Asus !

Asus Zenbook UX305CA works out of the box with Fedora 26 KDE Plasma and Gnome. Note 'Suspend' also works in KDE Plasma which has made me very happy. The next time i buy a notebook i will try system76 or entroware (not sure if they will ship to australia).

Re: This is why you should not buy Asus !

well this page is certainly interesting reading and not just for residents of Australia. It's a list of branded notebooks an Australian Vendor are providing with a choice of Linux OS installed
