Got a great deal on Craigslist for a Linux laptop that runs games very well. Check Craigslist in your area, or look up the Lenovo ThinkPad X230 on NewEgg.com I spent $200 ($250 total for the IPS display version) and could not be happier. Amazing battery life and phenomenal speed. Blog: http://www.kylinux.online/ ---System Specs--- Intel Core i5 8gb RAM 256gb mSATA USB 3.0 Lenovo ThinkPad X230 Ubuntu MATE 16.04

First I must say: Nice video production bro! I never thought anything made by Lenovo was worth buying(not even brand new) so Im very surprised to see what you can get out of this older model for $200!!! I might get one for my son. Thanx!

Bet. I'll make a pros and cons vid between Linux and Windows. In the meantime, if you want a good resource for them to get comfortable with programming, I HIGHLY recommend FreeCodeCamp.com. If they start from now, they'll have enough skills within a year to go into business for themselves and freelance building websites for businesses in your area. If they use smartphones a lot, tell them to ease off the Social Media and download SoloLearn apps (Learn HTML, Learn JS, and Learn CSS). It's setup like a game they can play on the go to keep practicing code. I'll do a video about those resources right after I do the Windows vs Linux vid. Keep encouraging di yutes, king! Jah know if fi mi pops neva deh yah, mi woulda neva reach weh mi deh! Give thanks for him and all the real fathers guiding their yutes. Big up yuhself, Remy!

A little late to the thread, but be aware there's a huge difference between Lenovo's "consumer-grade" models and business models. The business-model Thinkpads were made by IBM back in the day, and they're pretty dang solid. Long-story-short, they're basically Jeeps of the computer world, and they have a similar following such as on /r/Thinkpad. :P

Nice video pal ! I bought the x230 about 7 months ago and still works fine, it runs on a quad core i7 though so it is pretty fast and durable build. Except for one time where it constantly shut down and it is apparently a common problem on this model, but it is in fact just a poorly applied thermal paste so watch out for this one :). I also installed Linux on it, tried several distros, and works like a charm, it is a really good machine for work. The gaming aspect would be debatable, I mean I could run Wow and regular games but with an Intel HD graphics 4000 integrated GPU you cannot really go far in the gaming spectrum :). Once again, nice video, wish you the best!

As far as gaming goes, yeah I wouldn't play too many graphically-intensive games on this machine, but I'm a fan of 2D Platformers and JRPGs, so I'm all set as far as Linux games are concerned. Thanks for the feedback!

Give thanks, Mr. Shatoctga! The ThinkPad X230 is very fast when using Firefox and watching movies. I used mine for watching Crunchyroll quite frequently and never had any problems. I also had several processes running in the background at the same time and videos did not slow down, but the battery would drain much more quickly. For Elementary OS, I am confident that the Thinkpad will be more than powerful enough because (if I remember correctly) Elementary OS is much lighter than Ubuntu. You should be good to go with this setup!

Kylinux Cast ;D I keep coming back to this vid, you just present this little gem in a very pleasant way, not to mention playing Freedom Planet in the background. Thumbs up! I have the 14" version (T420) of this laptop. Considering you have used mainly for web development, browsing and watching movies, how usable is this screen size/resolution/weight to a bigger notebook? I am specifically interested in coding. Ubuntu Mate FTW :)

Give thanks for the kind comment! Much appreciated! For me personally, the weight and size of 14'' laptops are rarely desirable. The X230 is just under 3lbs. For web development on Linux, I've never really had any issues because of MATE's multiple worspace/desktop feature. I'd typically keep my IDE on one workspace, then CTRL+ALT+{Left or Right} to the browser, then once again to my terminal window if I've SSH'd into a remote server. To me, working in this fashion isn't much different than having multiple monitors, but it's entirely subjective. I no longer have this laptop though. I gave it to a relative in Jamaica as a holiday gift. I do most of my development work on my desktop. If you're a designer, I recommend sticking with the larger display of the T420 as more screen real estate would probably be more beneficial when designing layouts, colors, grids, etc.

-------------------------------------------------------------------- Minimum System Requirements to run Fortnite: -------------------------------------------------------------------- Intel HD 4000Core i3 2.4 Ghz4 GB RAMWindows 7/8/10 64-bit + Mac OSX Sierra --------------------------------------------- ThinkPad X230 System Specs: --------------------------------------------- 2.6-GHz Intel Core i5-3320M 4GB RAM (upgradable to 8GB) Intel HD 4000 -------------------------------- Will it run? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ------------------------------- If you have Windows, it should run since it meets the minimum system requirements, but you'd probably have to set all graphics settings to the lowest settings and turn off all effects. I have neither Fortnite nor Windows, so I cannot test this.

I had a Chromebook Acer C720 and ran Gallium OS (Linux) on it with no problems. Just look up a guide on YouTube or Google and make sure your Chromebook model is compatible.

I haven't tested this, but a quick Google search brought up some useful results: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-X-Series-Laptops/X230-and-running-2-external-monitors/td-p/1431567

Sweet! Let me know how it goes, or (if you're interested in doing so) do a video on it for those who'd like to see it tested. I'm sure it would help out many who have the same question.

I got a refurbished P51s and put Ubuntu on it. after changing the repository, I for it to install the NVIDIA drivers for it. Really nice. You would be surprised what Lenovo hardware will take, Linux-wise.

I haven't used Linux on T440s and I've also read that performance is a mixed bag as far as things working out of the box (trackpad, wi-fi, etc.) but that was back in 2015. Things may have changed by now. Checkout Lenovo's forum or /r/thinkpad on Reddit for 2018 user experiences.

I think it was a headphone/mic jack combo. Wouldn't recommend using that for recording clear audio. Use a USB mic or get a condenser mic and USB preamp.

Thank you so much - a very nice piece of hardware. I love ThinkPads, espeially the X2xx and T4xx series (I'm currently typing this on an T460s - love this laptop, picked it up for about the same price you paid for the X230). Second-hand X230's are much cheaper now too, by the way :) Although I don't think many come with that gorgeous IPS display you have on yours.

Windows 10 works very well on those retro Lenovos. I'm a bit surprised with my T430 and I want to tinker with another that could run Linux. The T430 has it's jobs now. I fell in love with a Solus Distro where many things works for me from the start, but it's on a Dell for now.

Tried Solus. Loved its design and wanted to use it on my main rig for gaming, but I was unable to get it to behave with my GTX 1080. Ended up in a strange login loop, tried to revert to an earlier instance, loop persisted, and I became impatient. My main Desktop is Ubuntu-MATE, but I'll probably put Solus on a Laptop if I ever get another one.

How is Steam on Xubuntu 18.04? I'm planning to purchase the same model as yours and was wondering if gaming on a lightweight OS would make it run well or not.

I use Xubuntu on my gaming PC, but I didn't on this laptop. It should work well though because Xfce is believed to be lighter than MATE by some.

It's the same OS. Ubuntu MATE is just Ubuntu with a MATE desktop environment. Linux Mint also has a MATE version.
