Review: Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 15

,----[ Quote ]
| The first step was booting Ubuntu 10.04 from an 
| USB hard disk to check the Linux support. Using 
| Ubuntu, everything worked out of the box, 
| including stuff like HDMI audio support or 
| output switching. An exception may be the 
| DVD drive, which only works if you set the 
| SATA mode to compatibility. Non-DVD media 
| also works in AHCI mode, but only if you 
| start with a disc inserted in the drive. 
| Playing DVDs requires setting a region code 
| using setregion(8) [otherwise they do not 
| work at all] and SATA compatibility mode 
| [otherwise they only work partially].


My First LXDE Desktop

| LXDE is desktop environtment like KDE and 
| Gnome. But it's lighter than KDE and Gnome. But 
| it's still need middle spec computer like 
| pentium 3/4 and with Minimum Ram 128-256 MB 
| Ram. LXDE is simple, but for newbie user like 
| me it's still little hard. LXDE support compiz 
| fusion for eyecandy your desktop. My First LXDE 
| Linux distribution was PCLinuxOS 2009.1 KDE. I 
| install PCLinuxOS 2009.1 then install task-
| lxde, then remove kde 3.5.10.



Lenovo Skylight smartbook hands-on impressions

| The Skylight runs on a custom Linux kernel and
| Kang noticed that the device lagged when
| having more than 9 apps open in the
| background. Playing back YouTube wasnât smooth
| either, despite having the ability to play
| Flash, this is likely to be fixed before
| launch. The built-in 3G sim card slot is
| welcome along with the HDMI port.
