Started using Ubuntu 10.04 on an older Acer laptop, then on a Gateway laptop (2005 or so for both) and had no problems. Increased Ubuntu to version 16.04 then switched to Mint and have been using Mint since. Now using Mint 19.3 installed on A Lenovo T430 and runs with no problems.

I have Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon 64-bit on my T61 with a 240GB SSD. It runs very well, boots up in about 30 seconds. Planning to upgrade the RAM from 4GB to 8GB in a few weeks.

On my T440P with Windows 10 Pro, I've got Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon 64-bit and Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS 64-bit installed as Hyper-V virtual machines. May look at dual booting in the future, but for now the VM works fine.
