alright i got a thinkpad x270 for cheap. i wanted something to upgrade. my other computers are a bit much to lug so it's gonna be my travel compy. it has computrace on, so i installed ubuntu so that it wouldnt be an issue.

noticing some glitchiness with the trackpoint and its buttons.

i was able to get the fingerprint reader working for log-on

installed tlp for the battery

anyone have recommendations for bits of software that can improve the thinkpad experience w/ubuntu?


@bnys wait there's a finger print reader on the X270??
