Except minor issues with the built-in webcams and microphone. <p>My significant other has bought the new AMD-powered Lenovo ThinkPad T14 with Windows 10 pre-installed. The T14 is a high-end but cheap ThinkPad model with a powerful third-generation AMD Ryzen 7 processor inside. I’ve set it up with dual-booting and Fedora Linux to test how well it works out of the box.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/lenovo-thinkpad-t14-fedora.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:97451bfc-d8b6-4bc6-9452-0ee1ff8cd3c0 2019-07-17T21:10:00Z 2019-07-17T21:10:00Z Why my 7-year old Windows 10 laptop became unbearably slow My aging PC’s processor didn’t support a new Windows 10 security feature, enabled by default, causing it to become slow and unstable. <p>Modern PC components, other than the battery and cooling fans, don’t degrade over time. (Correction: thermal compound does degrade over time.) So what caused my 7-year old first-generation <em>Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon</em> laptop to periodically become unbearably slow and crashy?</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/slow-windows-hvci.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:85d99920-6004-474d-aa6b-834a729a1461 2018-05-23T15:08:00Z 2018-05-23T15:08:00Z What is Lenovo Wi-Fi Security and should you enable or ignore it? Lenovo Wi-Fi Security collects information about your device and networks. It can warn you about insecure networks, but it doesn’t proactively protect you. <p>Lenovo laptop customers with the Lenovo Vantage app for Windows 10 (preinstalled by default) are being prompted to enable a new feature called <em>Lenovo Wi-Fi Security</em>. Lenovo claims the feature will help protect its customers against “malicious Wi-Fi networks”. But what does the feature do? and should you bother enabling it?</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/lenovo-vantage-wifi-security.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:4fbe71d4-21cd-41ff-b060-995db3720667 2018-05-16T15:37:00Z 2018-05-16T15:37:00Z Re-review of the Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro laptop/tablet hybrid 3 years later The battery is dead, performance is terrible, and Lenovo abandoned its drivers. My Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro 1370 didn’t stand up to the test of time. <p>I wrote a well-received review of my <em>Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro 1370</em> laptop/tablet hybrid back in 2015. Here is something you don’t see very often on the web: a follow-up review three years later of normal wear and tear.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/rereview-lenovo-yoga3-pro.html">Read more …</a></p> urn:uuid:c1a0ef13-bef0-4f8e-ade8-47278a0294fa 2018-01-15T15:50:00Z 2018-01-15T15:50:00Z Linux on Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1 (5th generation) My experiences running Linux on the fifth-generation Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1. All but the GPS and fingerprint reader worked out of the box. <p>I installed three Linux distributions — Fedora Linux 27, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and Ubuntu 17.10 — on the Lenovo ThinkPad Carbon X1 (5th gen.) and had a look at the out-of-the-box Linux hardware compatibility with these three distributions.</p> <p><a href="https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/linux-on-lenovo-thinkpad-5genx1.html">Read more …</a></p>
