Ubuntu 14.04 on my Thinkpad T400 sometimes has the problem of the builtin wifi adapter stops working, and I haven't found a way of solving it, albeit asking quite a few questions in this forum.
I plan to buy a newer laptop (maybe still in Thinkpad T-series, for example, T430p, T440p, T450p, T460p) for similar usage purpose as my T400.
If budget permits, I would like to buy the newest model.
But my worry is that how well the wifi module in the current Linux kernel version supports the latest laptop model. I saw on the internet that one safe bet is to choose a model that is not the latest but has been tested to work without problem with the latest Linux kernel's wifi module. Can anyone let me know how well the latest Linux kernel and the recent T-series models work with each other?
Also I appreciate if you could mention other similar laptops not necessarily in T-series or Lenovo. For example, recent models in Dell's XPS, System76 laptops.
