Pleasing to read that linux will be a default installation. Unfortunately when another company, Dell, in the past issued laptops with Ubuntu as the default installation, that company didn't sell them in all geographical locations, so, where I am located, missed out. Hopefully that practice is not repeated here with Lenovo.
the problem is the price, They are horribly overpriced. I sell laptops that are even better than that and for far less. I will even put fedora on it at no extra charge. I think they need to stop trying to gouge
