Thread: Opensuse for a latop

  1. #1

    Default Opensuse for a latop

    Hi I just bought a new laptop and I played with opensuse for quit a while on VirtualBox and I was wondering if Opensuse is ok to use on a laptop as a Desktop OS, because It gives me the fell that is more enterpise / server trageting rather that a desktop.

    Yes.

    I have installed it on several laptops for several people, most of them switching from XP, some from Vista, all very satisfied. As well, it is the primary OS on all of my laptops and towers, now, for quite some time.

    I've only ever used SUSE and openSUSE on a laptop; it has always had features which made it feel fully at home on a laptop though sometimes you have to search for them.

    I've only used openSUSE for the past 8 or 9 years on a ThinkPad and various HP laptops.

    re: Laptop Brand: I suppose I should have mentioned that, also. My installs are running on Acer laptops, and for others includes HP and Toshiba, all running very well.

    I have some HP, Dell and Acer in the past for laptops. Everything works well, because i always boot my usb install and test everything before i buy the hardware
    Now MSI is my laptop and the only thing that i did not notice was this optimus intel and nvidia combo-jumbo during my live testing. All works well including short-cut keys for wireless, bluetooth etc... S2disk and S2ram works like a charm too. I just disable nouveau and kept the intel gfx drivers since im not a fan of games .

    I am currently using openSUSE on a Gateway NV51 laptop. It's the best decision I have made software-wise in a long time. It runs great, and in the KDE desktop you can choose several widgets such as battery monitor and temperature sensor that are quite interesting to have on your panel.
