[ubuntu] Thinkpad T430s 12.04 compatiblity

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi everyone. First time considering getting a new laptop to run Ubuntu so I'm a newbie. I'd like to use the latest release if possible (64bit) and I'm wondering what does / does not work on the T430s? Specifically I plan to get the SSD model. I'll also be running it a lot of the time on an external monitor and I'm assuming it will work like a windows machine? (close lid = run only on external monitor, open lid / unplug monitor = laptop monitor resumes...) Any advice would be great. Thanks! (Hardware)
