Thinking since a long time about buying a tablet/laptop and wanting to do it with Linux. But what to buy?
Hardware may turn a Linux install to nightmare from what I remember on some desktop I built couple years ago mostly on Debian (More strict Distro than many others, I know, but sticking to it from being used to my servers always running it..). So I m here for all your good and fresh advice ;)
Surface Pro 3 + Ubuntu seem a nice mix but maybe outdated by now.
Small explanation of what I seek:
I will use it for easy web browsing, reading, writing, watching videos and the like.
Nothing heavy (photoshop, gaming, etc) I am keeping my desktop computers for that. It really is for mobile option while in travel time or at friends houses.
I like the tablet touchscreen feel and use. But I can't enjoy something without USB/network and a true OS to handpick my software (and not only app store things....).
Linux because I m not a fan of Win10 and only use it on desktop when needed. But willing to go back to Linux (even if after many years away from it, I will call myself novice-ish about it)
All of this said (hopefully in a not boring and easy to read way :D ), I had my eyes on the Surface Pro 3, from old Wendell video of linux install, and fat that it seems a good hardware for a kind of tablet/laptop hybrid.
May select Surface Pro 4 instead... or some other very good one.
So to repeat myself about the purpose of my post. I m trying to find advice about my best options to select a tablet-laptop product that will be smooth and nice to use with Linux (Ubuntu?).
PS: sorry if writing badly at times, I enjoy lurking Tek videos and forums a little but as a distant french guy, not at my best when writing in English. Don't mind being told I do it badly, if made to improve both the post and my future writing :D
Sorry as well if poorly chosen category, wasn't sure between Linux and Tablet/Laptop ...
