I'm finally doing it /g/. It's a beautiful machine.
What distro should I install with my beautiful unix-like OS?
Ignore typical /g/ neckbeard shit. It's a great machine and you are making no mistake. The fact that you come to this board alone shows that you're not buying a $1200 facebook machine.
/g/ is just mad because they're either too poor to afford it, or think their shitty $100 plastic chinkpads are actually good machines. Enjoy your looks of disgust and virginity you fucking neckbears
Not even him, but what the fuck does that even have to do with his post?
It's like you already knew everything wrong with your own post and as soon as someone replied with anything but praises you spilled it out.
>think their shitty $100 plastic chinkpads are actually good machines
They ARE good machines. They aren't powerful by modern standards, but they offer features which literally no other machine offers. Can you swap out a HDD on a Macbook? Can you replace a keyboard? Can you upgrade the RAM? Can you even replace the battery?
The 2009ish Thinkpads are getting old, but they have some features which NO other laptop offers. The $1000 savings and great design make the looks of disgust worth it, and in reality it's more than $1000 because of the ease of repair.
Well Android is definitely the one making the most efforts to have good battery life, but to go as far as to call Linux running a Solaris VM to run Java apps "the most battery-optimized"...
That's true. The kernel has a number of improvements, though, which haven't been included in Linux.
So I'll amend what I said earlier: the Android kernel is the most battery-optimized even if the rest of Android is worse. The Android kernel with a proper UI written in C++ would probably be the best.
Meh, I like my MacBook. Of course, I only use it for school work, but it's fine for that. Great battery life, high res screen, decent OS (prefer it over W8 on my desktop). Couldn't find anything else that had a great screen and battery life in that form factor. The only problem is now I look like one of those Apple loving faggots. Oh well.
OP, just go with Arch or something if you really need something more functional than OS X.
