I'm looking at getting work to finally replace my old DELL Vostro and I'm 
looking at the above laptop.

I would love to hear people's opinion of this kit regarding compatability and 
stability with Linux. To be fair, I would imagine most laptops would be an 
improvement on my Vostro where kernel updates keep breaking the WIFI and I 
still haven't managed to get the built n cam working after all these years.

The dist will probably be Fedora not not necessarily - I fount the recent 
thread on low maintenance laptops quite interesting.

To be honest, the main thing is having a high enough resolution, and I'm 
pretty open minded regarding everything else so other suggestions would also 
be welcome
