So basically guys I need help in picking between the two, looking for a lightweight linux machine so windows is useless to me. Looking for a long battery life (which both provide). What troubles me about the smaller lafite 2 is that it takes ages to charge, I've never experienced this before with a laptop so I don't know if I'll hate it or not, making the lenovo more appealing but... the lafite has NVME, I7 and is cheaper. Is the higher res, warranty, bigger screen and quick charge of the lenovo worth it in your guys opinion? PS: Just for linux solely, little bit of programming, youtube, music etc and both are lightweight and almost the same thickness, around 17-18mm.
Edited: what would the advantage be of getting a razer vs. lenovo? I have no personal experience with razer laptops and was wondering about their advantages for this kind of application. I don't want to derail the thread though.
No problem man, based in scotland so everything in america is comparatively less expensive, hence why I'm going to PC specialist of all places haha, but seriously, the premium feel of the lenovo worth the higher specs of the lafite 2 for terms of linux? No gaming, just surfing and programming with a little scripting on the shell. Just looking for decent battery life and portability as I already have a "decent" desktop.
The lenovo power plug alone is a massive advantage. If you use a lenovo thinkpad series laptop the powercord never needs to be replaced (in my experience ymmv). Lenovos also seem to be, on average, the most durable and most solid PCs besides paying an arm and a leg for a Getac or Tougbook. If you want a rock solid machine go lenovo. I do not know how much these things translate to their ultrabooks though
I wasn't sure but it looks like that it wouldn't. I would do your own research to be sure as there was a shit storm of a couple of months for lenovo, so its not a bad idea to look around if your really thinking about dropping some cash on one of their laptops.
Yeah it was a real shit storm. I think there might have been something that was tied at the hip to the bios on their pre-done windows install. I don't think it was a problem when you reinstalled but I that was the one thing I'm unsure of.
