Has anybody got Ubuntu running on a modern laptop with a USB3.0 port replicator? Specifically running additional monitors.
I want to move my work machine away from a desktop to a docked laptop. And I don't want to have to plug in power, keyboard, mouse, monitors and net every morning.
I've been looking at two machines:
Lenovo ThinkPad 440s The Linux compatibility looks good but according to forums the USB3.0 dock display doesn't work, and the manufacturer has no interest in making it work. I hear better things about the USB2.0 replicator but I don't know if it works with this PC
Dell Precision M3800 Dell have a "baby brother" to this with official Ubuntu support and I've read this one works well too. The recommended dock is also USB3.0 and I can't find any info on Linux support for it. No response from Dell either
I'm open to other options but I do need lots of RAM and lots of SSD. I'd love to hear from anyone who has something like this working. If I can't find a solution soon I'm going to have to buy a Mac. And I really don't want to do that!
