New Laptop

I succumbed to the ‘Black Friday’ ripoff deals and headed out to PC World to blag a bargain.
I think I did quite well, they had a Lenvovo Idea Pad 510, ex display for £280, reduced from £499.
It was mint, not a mark. (a bit of dust and a few fingerprints)
I did briefly flirt with the supplied OS, Windows 10 Home, but barely had it staggered into life it was demanding to do updates.
Quick trip to town then home with a SandisK SSD 120 Gb, a few moments with a no1 phillips and Brave New World – Ubuntu 16.04!
Very impressed with Ubuntu on the Lenovo, it found all the hardware so no driver issues at all and a 1080P screen makes this a very useable Laptop.
And, are you listening Apple? It has two USB3 ports plus ethernet, HDMI and a VGA, an SD slot and a DVD drive!
Full keyboard with a number pad. 15.6″ screen. It is a bit chunky compared to some but I am tickled pink.
