Nice! I'm think Lenovo X1 Carbon with Ubuntu - it's good!

Sry.. but i have the laptop, Super design and performance.. But linux (debian 6) just has a TON of problems. 1- Trackpoint needs a fix, 2- FN Keys dont work 3- After suspend or hibernate you get a blank screen and you need to reset. 4 - Resolution does not function with the max setting. And a lot of other little things… SADLY THERE IS NO OFFICIAL SUPPORT FOR LINUX FROM LENOVO. Only if you run RedHat or SLES on it.
