Feedback on the Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 11

Asked by Jnyman-jbtec on 2011-03-15

I would like to receive a copy of the ubuntu image which works on this version of Thinkpad. I have not found anything on Lenovo's website. Is this something I can download from your cite?

Kind regards,

We distribute the image directly to Lenovo and it is up to them at the moment to make it public. The aim of the image is to allow Lenovo to ship pre-install systems with it. Have you tried contacting them?

Anyhow, the plan for these type of systems is to be certified with the public Ubuntu version in the following release. So you might want to try the Natty Beta1 build (due out in a few weeks) as the best chance of a public image that works for the Edge 11.

Hi Victor,

Thanks for your prompt reply. I can report that all works really well.

Big big kudos to the Ubuntu team(s) for your superb hardware support. I
had previously installed 64 bit Ubuntu 10.10 running on Dell E6400 on a
250GB WD HDD which was working well.

I came home with my new thinkpad edge 11.6 today with Intel i3. Swapped
hdd to the one from Dell and booted up. I haven't found anything that
does not work so far. Strangely enough, this little machine seems faster
and snappier than the Dell :)

Kind regards,
Janne "Janski" Nyman
