This is my primary lightweight daily driver laptop. This was issued to me at work new in 2018, and I was allowed to keep it for personal use when it was replaced in 2023. This replaced my previous Thinkpad X1 Carbon as my lightweight daily driver laptop.
- i7-8650U Quad core 1.9ghz base 4.2ghz turbo.
- 8GB RAM
- 500GB NVMe Samsung 970 SSD
- 14″ FHD multi-touch display (folds back 180° into tablet mode)
- Ubuntu Linux 22.04LTS
If I need a more powerful laptop for messing with virtual machines or light 3D gaming I will use my W540 but it’s big, heavy, and battery life is not great, you pretty much need to be attached to the wall with it.
