Towards the end of April 2020, Lenovo announced its collaboration with the Red Hat-sponsored community project, Fedora Linux. It aimed at bringing Lenovo’s ThinkPad P1 Gen2, ThinkPad P53, and ThinkPad X1 Gen8 laptops with Fedora 32 pre-loaded.

Finally, after a worthwhile wait of over four months, Lenovo has started offering its ThinkPad laptops with a pre-installed Fedora workstation. As of now, ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen8 is the first laptop that is now available to buy, while others are still to come.

Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen8 With Linux

X1 Carbon Gen 8 is a 14-inch, thin, and lightweight premium laptop powered by a 10th generation Intel Core i5-10210U processor with 4 cores, 8 threads, and up to 4.20 GHz turbo boost.

Its base model, which is priced at $1287 USD, comes with a 1080p Full HD IPS panel display. However, Wide Quad HD (1440p) and 4k Ultra HD IPS displays are also available at the cost of extra money.

If you care about the battery life of your laptop, this ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen8 with Fedora might interest you a lot. This is because it claims to give up to 19.5 hours of battery life with Rapid Charge boosts up to 80% in just an hour.

Among the others, here is the list of specifications of a fedora-powered X1 Carbon Gen8 laptop:

  • Memory: up to 16GB LPDDR3 2133MHz (Soldered)
  • Hard Drive: up to 1TB PCIe SSD
  • Camera: 720p HD
  • Wireless: Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX201 802.11AX with vPro (2 x 2), Bluetooth 5.0
  • Fingerprint Reader
  • Keyboard: Backlit – US English

Now, if you’re interested in buying Lenovo’s ThinkPad X1 Carbon Gen8 with Fedora Linux OS, place an order from here.

Just to remind you, in June 2020, Lenovo also promised to certify its entire P-series ThinkPad laptops and ThinkStation PCs for top Linux distros, Ubuntu, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

Hence, along with the upcoming Fedora-powered ThinkPad P1 Gen2 and P53, Lenovo will also roll out its workstation computers with Ubuntu and Red Hat Linux desktops.
