Good OS for convertible Lenovo Yoga 730
adibuyono commented on 12 July 2019 at 3:37 am UTC

I am planning to buy a Lenovo Yoga 730 15", with core i7-8550U and GTX1050. Since I am a computer noob, I need some guide about this convertible laptop and linux :

P.s : My usage will be as tablet (touch) , a little drawing, and a bit gaming.

1. What distro should I use? I mean a distro good for both laptop mode and tablet mode (and touchscreen mode of course), and with both potrait and landscape mode support?
2. Is this laptop good some linux game? (like dota 2 and others). I mean is Core -i7-8550u and GTX1050 work well on Linux as it suppose on Windows?
3. Is it hard to make the GTX 1050 run properly/as main GPU for the laptop? Or I need to run DRI_PRIME=1 everytime I want to run an apps? If yes, is there any GUI way to do it?

Thanks in advance.
