From 3GB RAM to 32GB RAM

Blaise Alleyne at 2017-08-04T21:04:48Z

My ThinkPad T470 has arrived. 1TB SSD, 32GB RAM, ~17h battery life, i7 processor... from using a X60 (160GB SSD, 3GB RAM, 1.5-2h battery) and T61 (240GB SSD, 4GB RAM)... fresh install of Debian Stretch is up and running. I'm still keeping the X60 and T61 in rotation from now, but getting used to a decade difference in laptop computing! (And searching for webcam blockers and such...)

Whoa. Writing down that model number for my next work laptop replacement choice. (scribbles) ThinkPad T470... 17h battery life... YES PLEASE.

Still to confirm and measure myself, but that was from a review, not Lenovo marketing stuff. (I went with the non-touch screen based on that recommendation, for better battery life.)

I assumed this was either your own independent research or personal experience, but thanks! I look forward to your verdict, especially w/ GNU/Linux installed.
