Which devices? What works, what don't?

Continuing the discussion from Desktop Team Updates - Monday 16th December 2019:

@kenvandine and others in the desktop team, and in this too.

“If you’re interested in discussing a topic please start a thread in the Desktop area of Discourse.”

On which devices are you running the distro, and what works, what don’t?
The word “desktop” doesn’t give much of a meaning, without giving the name, type of the device.


dell latitude d610 (pentium m, 1gb, intel i915)
ibm thinkpad t43 (pentium m, 1.5gb ram, radeon x300)
dell inspiron 6400 (c2d-t2450, 2gb, intel 945gm)

hp dx6120mt (mini-tower, pentium 4 dual core, 3gb, winfast clone of nvidia 7600gt)

The x86 above were used for testing x86 releases up till 19.04 ISOs stopped being produced (Xubuntu & Lubuntu early-mid Dec-2018 so 19.04 cycle), now just 18.04 however dx6120 still has 19.04 (&…) on it

x86_64 laptops

lenovo thinkpad sl510 (c2d-t6570, 2gb ram, i915)
lenovo thinkpad x201 (i5-m520, 4gb, i915)
sony vaio ultrabook (i5-9400u, 4gb, intel haswell-ULT)

motion computing j3400 (c2d-u9400, 4gb, intel mobile 4 series)
(WACOM device works perfectly; useful as tablet and/or with keyboard attached; some desktops are better in tablet mode than others; once you have onboard or equiv. enabled it’s good; I ignore fingerprint readers)

Anyone installed on laptops manufactured and released in 2018, 2019?
