My T420 just arrived today and the longest part of the install process was the amount of time it took
to write the memstick image to a usb thumb drive. All the hardware was detected and it even suspends
and resumes without issue.

It also looks like you can bump this laptop up to 16GB of RAM for about 130 bucks, which isn’t too bad

I just submitted my dmesg.boot to dmesgd
