Lenovo ThinkPad X1
Lenovo ThinkPad X1, Sandy Bridge (Core i5, 2,5 GHz), NWG2MRT This model has SSD 80/HDD 320 pair. Comes without optical drive. Has UEFI BIOS with BIOS-legacy fallback mode. Has Windows 7 Pro pre-installed, with tons of bloatware (bing toolbar, big Lenovo superbar button et all) pre-installed, too.
Drive space customization
- SSD: two WinRE partitions and one Windows system partition - HDD: blank
I've chosen to:
- leave WinRE untouched (there are two such partitions) - use SSD for my root partition - use HDD for swap, /home, /var (~30 Gb, pacman cache goes here), /tmp
Due to the fact that there is no optical drive, you need to install Arch from USB stick.
The lazy way to install is just default installation, works flawlessly. Installed system will boot in legacy-BIOS mode.
Just everything works out of the box. I installed only synaptics and video-intel drivers.
Suspend works fine, even with status indicator.
I will improve this page after several days using this laptop. Today is mine first day of it.
