Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen3 (My laptop)

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
  • Ubuntu Linux 20.04LTS

This laptop is my travel laptop, it’s not super powerful, but it’s thin and light and fairly power efficient, good for basic web use.

If I need a more powerful laptop for messing with virtual machines or light 3D gaming I will use my W540 but it’s heavy and battery life is not great, you pretty much need to be attached to the wall.
