Does anyone have Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon running on the latest variant of the Thinkpad X1 Extreme?
I currently run various flavours of Linux as virtual machines under Parallels Desktop on an aged Macbook Pro, but I want to break out of the Apple walled garden and run Linux natively as my OS of choice. At the moment my likely choice of new laptop is this year's model of X1 Extreme - sometimes called the X1 Extreme Gen2
I really like Mint, but I'm wary of buying the laptop without having first had it confirmed that Mint will run on it without problems.
I know the 'old' X1 Extreme is certified for Linux where it is purchased as a Linux system, but I haven't seen anything about the later version being similarly certified.
Does anyone have any experience of attempting a Mint installation on this system?
