Hi,

 

so is it at least possible to run Linux on VirtualBox if you have installed Win10 on 710s?

 

Tnx

How slow are we talking about? If I would use 90% Win10 and 10% Linux on a Virtualbox, is this laptop worth considering? It really has a lot to offer in this price range, similar Dell xps13 is cca 1.400eur here...

I dont have any sort of benchmarks, but I can say that it is usable with Virtual Machine, I run it with 2 processors and 8192 RAM, I can hear the machine roaring and it does heat up.

 

If your planning on running just one VM, I think it should be okay. I can run some benchmark if that would help you.

The best it would be if you can post a short video of notebook behaviour when you run 1 vm for example. This would give us a better overview than any benchmark test.

As you can see, it is usable, but lags at different points, also u can see the animation for closing fading out: Small Clip

Thanks for the clip, yes it's laggy but somehow usable if you use it not very often. Btw how loud was the PC during this video, a little lauder or disturbingly loud?

Not disturbingly loud, just the buzz increases quite a bit. One issue, is when I forget to shut it down and just close the lid and the VM is running it does not goto sleep, the cores still run and the bag would get disturbingly warm so to say.

So, we finally forced the online shop to take back this Lenovo piece of ****.

 

The next 20 notebooks definitely will be from ASUS (zenbook series).

I installed a dual boot system with Windows7 and OpenSuSe42.1 in about 80 minutes (including configuration etc.).
