Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen3

This laptop randomly quit POSTing a few months after I replaced it, so it’s non-functional currently, but I have not spent much time troubleshooting, so may be repairable.

My daily driver laptop, a Lenovo X1 Carbon ultrabook

  • i5-5300U dual core 2.3ghz base 2.9ghz turbo
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256GB SSD
  • 14″ WQHD multi-touch display
  • Linux Mint 21.1LTS

I got this laptop from my work, I was the original user of it, when it was retired from service there, I was allowed to take it home for personal use.  I use this as my backup travel laptop, it’s not super powerful, but it’s thin, light and fairly power efficient, good for basic web use.

My Thinkpad X1 Yoga has taken over as my primary lightweight travel laptop now.
