Lenovo Thinkpad T440p with Manjaro - User Experience

I bought used Lenovo ThinkPad T440p as second laptop, with preinstalled Windows 10, but I am thinking about installing Manjaro on it.

The configuration is:
CPU: Intel Core i7 4710MQ 2500MHz
RAM: 8GB
Graphic card: Intel HD-Graphic 4600
HDD: 500GB

I was told that there could be some problems with this model running Linux (trackpad problems, audio problems, bios tweaking before installation).

Hearing any real experience from T440p users from this forum and general advice would be really nice.

You can boot the live USB and see :wink:

Yes that would be the fastest and easiest way. But still there are things that could be experienced only in longtime usage.

I wonder if a live usb-stick via usb 3.0 could be faster at some point than an installed Manjaro on HDD.

No. :slight_smile:

I have the precise same laptop. Everything works in Manjaro - and any other Linux distro i have tried. I really hate the default trackpad, so I replaced that with on them the T450 series (easily purchased on eBay).
I have even run a few VM's - with no issues (i added 16GB of memory).

on T440 i have trouble, no bluetooth driver detected but bluetooth driver is detected, i don't know why XD
