Lenovo Now Offering Fedora Linux as an Option

Aug 31, 2020

Lenovo is making good on their Linux promise by adding Fedora into the mix.

Lenovo kicked off the Summer of 2020 by claiming it would certify both their ThinkPad and ThinkStation hardware lines for Linux. The hardware giant is making good on that promise and is now offering a laptop preloaded with Fedora Linux.

At the moment, there’s only one device offered with Fedora. Said device is the ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen 8. The base price of this laptop is $2,145.00, but with the coupon THINKPROMO that price is cut to $1,287.00. The base model includes a 10th gen Intel Core i5-10210U CPU (1.60 GHz) with 4 Cores, 8 Threads, and a 6 MB cache, 8 GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 256 GB PCIe SSD, 14.0" FHD (1920x1080) IPS anti-glare display, a 720p HD camera, Intel Wi-Fi 6, and a Fingerprint Reader. Of course, you can configure up to a 10th gen Intel Core i7, 16 GB of RAM, a 1 TB PCIe SSD, and a 4K UHD (3840x2160) IPS display for a total of $3,451 (using the THINKPROMO coupon drops that price to $2,070.60).

One very exciting feature about the X1 Carbon is that it promises a massive 19.5 hours of battery life and offers Rapid Charge of up to 80% in an hour.

Lenovo is using a Fedora Workstation image with zero customizations, so it will include the GNOME Desktop Environment.
