Folks, before I start installing this new OS and stumble upon predictable questions, here is my setup and my previous problems.
My computer is a Lenovo Thinkpad W520, a powerhouse with an i7-2720, 32 GB RAM, two fairly big SSDs, fingerprint reader, USB3, eSata and a color calibration tool - you name it, this was built for photo and video editing.
The printers are a Samsung M288 printer/scanner and a Brother MFC 6490CW2.
Recently I installed Ubuntu 18 LTS and ran into several problems - the machine did not boot properly, sound did not work and more, printer installation felt like a dentist appointment, Wifi was dead slow, Bluetooth did not work and a few more. I could fix some of that but it was no fun at all. So, I am ready to quit, and as a long-time Mac user without enough money for Apple gear I feel attracted by elementary...
**As elementary OS is based on Ubuntu, too, do I have to expect the same problems?
Did any of you ever successfully install this OS on a similar machine? **
