Re: X210s

I noticed that the M.2 slot is accessible via the Express Card slot. Do you think an eGPU would be feasible? Does anyone know how many PCIe lanes are allocated to the NVMe slot? Also, I'm constantly impressed by this thing's performance (yeah, I know, it's more about Intel than 51nb, but still). Cin...

Re: X210s

How do I update it? Running "sudo apt-get install powertop" doesn't do anything.

Re: X210s

Huh, okay.

Re: X210s

I have a fresh 9 cell battery, and Ubuntu reports 101.8 Wh, although I'm not sure if that value is reliable. The same Power Statistics application reports 5.5 W when idling using my usual preferred screen brightness (which, to be fair, is quite low) and around 7 W at max brightness. So the idle batt...

Re: X210s

I've started a project to document and attempt to fix some BIOS/ACPI bugs here: https://github.com/tadfisher/x210-bios The most glaring issues are the lack of ALPM for NVMe drives and a nasty SATA controller issue which renders drives unreadable after resuming from suspend, requiring a hard reboot....
