This question already has an answer here:

I would like to buy a Lenovo 500S-14ISK, but I can't find any reviews on it regarding linux compatibility. Ubuntu does not seem to have certified this laptop (yet)?

Anybody had experience with this model? Since it's a lenovo, my gut says it will work with Ubuntu/Mint out of the box, but I just want to be sure.

  • I had a painfull experience with Lenovo. If you want to use virtual-box ask if you can enable virtualization in BIOS. For some reason it was locked in my BIOS and I had to update the bios. I also have problems with graphics (bad display quality), but I have AMD graphics and you have Intel. – NonStandardModel Apr 15 '16 at 5:40

I have this model and I'm running Ubuntu 16.04. Most things work fine except there are some minor issues with using the hotkeys (not all of them will work properly).

  • I want to buy this laptop too, can you be more specific, what the hotkeys that doesnt workm ? do you recommend this product when using ubuntu? – Gujarat Santana Sep 29 '16 at 14:21
