A new friend, Lenovo Thinkpad W550s


After losing a friend in December, I finally gained a new  a Thinkpad W550S, after an emotional roller coaster (not getting the Laptop I ordered), and months of waiting I have it in my hands.

The rest is normal! I can report that Fedora is running like a dream, and that I did have issues with the Nvidia card.

This rescued me Bumblebee Howto on the Fedora Wiki

send me a Tweet at @kmf if you have questions about the Laptop.

Disclaimer: I don’t use Windows, it’s not even on it. So I can’t answer any questions about it. Sorry.

    This machine is freaking awfull , the x w and t series ending in 30 were the last decent thinkpads.
    On the w550s you cannot even force it to use discrete gfx only or igp only.
    Also the quality is even more flimsy and the of center keyboard is awfull.
