As a 99% Linux user I am very content with a Lenovo T470 that I bought as 2nd hand machine, with 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD and two docks, for less than 400 EUR. In general: If you don't have a very special application case that requires top-of-the row power in any aspect, better buy a used machine for one of the many nerds who think only the newest machines will be powerful enough. Tongue

The saved money might be better invested into periphery, like a 4k monitor.


It will mainly be used for the basic things  - email, social media, forums, writing the odd document.  In addition, I will be doing some light audio and video editing.

I looked at some of the Lenovo machines, but the T470 is only a 14" screen and I would want something a little larger.  My current machine is dual boot Windows/Linux, but I rarely use the Linux side and wouldn't bother doing that again. 

I'm replacing an old machine (6 years or more) and as it will probably be the last one I buy before I die, I'm trying to cover all the angles.


1: Samsung 12.2" SM-P900: Android 5.0.2 
2: eSTAR GRAND HD Quad-Core 4G 10.2": Android 5.1 
3: Home-built BT pedal
