On the first day of the Linux Festival in Barcelona, I saw a laptop that looked exactly like my old one, and my heart skipped a beat.
The laptop’s specs are exactly the same, and it runs a very similar Linux distro.
However, the specs were significantly different.
There were three things missing.
First, the processor.
The Intel Core i5-6300U is an 8th generation chip.
The chipsets of the days before were based on the 7th generation Core 2 Duo family, which are all known for their performance.
The CPU of the i5 is a quad-core, 1.3GHz processor with 2MB of L3 cache.
That means it can handle up to 3.5GHz of intensive multitasking, and can be upgraded to 2.5 GHz.
The processor of the future, the i7-7700K, is expected to be a quad core, 2.7GHz processor that can handle more than 4GHz of multitasking.
If you’ve been reading this blog for long, you know that I’m a fan of Intel’s Skylake architecture.
The i7 is designed to handle high-end gaming workloads and, while the i3-8300 is similar to the i6 in performance, the latter is based on a much smaller and slower core.
That meant that I was left with only two options: either I would have to get a Core i7, or I would be spending an additional $1,000 to upgrade to a Core M chip.
That’s why I was skeptical when I saw the new Acer laptop with the i4-4200K processor.
It came with a Core m3, and that meant that it was also compatible with Ubuntu.
There’s a lot of good news here, however.
This is a PC that can be configured for Windows 10, and the Intel Core m5 processor is capable of up to 2GHz.
So it can easily run the Windows 10 version of Linux, too.
The new Acer laptops come with a dual-core Intel Core M5 processor.
That puts the CPU on a chipset that’s not compatible with the newer i7 processor in the Acer laptop, and a quad Core i3 chip on a chip that’s compatible with an older i7.
The other major difference is that this new model of laptop does not have a touchpad.
That is a big deal for Linux users who like to use their mouse and keyboards as the primary input device.
I was very happy to learn that I could now use my mouse and keyboard with the Acer laptops touchpad, and I would also be able to control them from the laptop’s touchscreen, as long as I did not have to use the keyboard.
I also liked the fact that the Acer’s touchpad is very responsive.
It has an overall feel that feels comfortable to use, and with the touchscreen you can easily move the laptop around while the system is running.
As a result, the laptop is a great option for a new user who is looking for a computer that’s comfortable to hold, and also for those who are looking for an easy-to-use Linux operating system.
