Random notes from installing Linux on it … it does just work – but ….
Don’t forget to update the BIOS …. there are loads of oldish threads on the Intel support forum with people having problems.
- DisplayPort and
(one per monitor).
Which is a bit of a pain but does mean I use one less electrical adapter/plug.
(A USB-C to HDMI cable does just work at least).
Surprisingly, unscientific benchmarks from doing a Linux kernel compile (make -j6 ) show it’s not hugely quicker than an elderly i5 (3rd gen) I have (15 minutes vs 17 minutes).
