Thinkcentre M720 TINY - PFsense?

Does the new Thinkcentre M720 TINY support pfsense and FreeBSD? I plan on getting the one with 128gb of nvme ssd and the intel i350 quad nic as pictured below...

You may have better luck asking over on the Lenovo Linux forums:

Ubuntu is the officially preferred Linux.

Yea, ubuntu is most common, But for the M720, I have a very specific use case in mind. I could buy another device, but a lot of them come from china or are self made pc's and they dont have all around hardware support like buying a prebuilt devic would have.

(Stop me if you've heard this one before...)

 

BSD is not Linux.

But, to be more helpful, yes pfSense will run fine on the Lenovo M720 Tiny.  The hardware is perhaps a tad pricey for the job, but if this is the required form factor, it will do it.  (edit: $360... not bad, I take back the pricey bit)

 

I was not aware they had one that shipped with a quad NIC... I'll have to check that out.
