As your tablet uses an ARM processor instead of a 32 or 64 bit processor as is typical on laptops and desktops, elementary OS is not available for it at this time.

I'm running Elementary an a low-spec HP laptop, and it runs at least as well as it did under Win8 (which I hated), and probably better. My laptop has an AMD e1-2100 dual-core CPU and 8GB of RAM Below site compares the performance of the G3220T vs my e1-2100: http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/235/AMD_E1-Series_E1-2100_vs_Intel_Pentium_Dual-Core_G3220T.html ...

You can always change it back using recovery mode if anything breaks. So it should be safe

Not sure about the U330, but it works fine on my Lenovo U31 running elementary OS 0.3.1 and prior to the 0.3.1 update. I think it is the F9 key that enables it on the U330. If you have Hotkey mode disabled in BIOS, you need to press Fn + F9 to turn on the backlight. http://www.lenovo.com/shop/americas/content/user_guides/u330p_u430p_ug_english.pdf "Note:...

Yes, elementary OS still uses X. I do not have the device you do, but I believe a good start would be to create the files you need, as instructed in the links you provided. I do have a ~/.config/monitors.xml, so you can safely create it (nano ~/.config/monitors.xml), with the following contents: <monitors version="1"> <configuration> <...

I'm not so familiar with the computer you have but as long as Windows XP runs slow probably it is not a good idea. What I recommend you is to make a live usb and try it, probably with some older version of the OS (http://osarchive.sda1.eu/elementary-os) because if I am not wrong, your computer is 32bit (i386) but all later versions of the elementary os are ...

Depends on what you're planning to do with your Windows virtual machine, because Windows normally can't see Linux (ext4-formatted) drives and work with them. So if you don't plan to heavily exchange files between elementary OS (or any other Linux-based virtual machine) and Windows VM, and keep all Windows user files inside Windows virtual disk, you can go ...

Try this: Wingpanel Nightlight Indicator https://github.com/elementary/wingpanel-indicator-nightlight

You could try this, it works for ubuntu so might work for Eos At the login screen, press CTRL+ALT+F1 to switch to tty1. Now, type the following commands one by one to fix the broken Ubuntu Linux. $ sudo rm /var/lib/apt/lists/lock $ sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock $ sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend $ sudo dpkg --configure -a $ sudo apt clean $ sudo ...

The current elementary OS version Loki is build on Ubuntu 16.04 and the next version of elementary, Juno, will be build on Ubuntu 18.04. So I don't think that will be an issue. Also see: https://www.reddit.com/r/elementaryos/comments/7l7mis/is_elementaryos_affected_the_same_way_as_ubuntu/

Installing a Touchpad Indicator could help with this as it seemed to be a "go-to fix" for Ubuntu 16.04 which I used in the past. To do so, open Terminal and paste these commands: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install touchpad-indicator Then launch touchpad-indicator from the Applications Menu which will place ...

I had exactly the same problem on a T430 a year ago. I was going nuts until one of my colleagues calmly pointed out the little switch on the right hand side of the base. I slid this across and wifi sprang to life - essentially it wasn't clear which was was on and which was off. I cursed that I hadn't known about that a couple of hours earlier... There is a ...

Just installed it on the 910 dual boot with Win10. Only issue at this point is getting the wifi to work. I can BT to my mobile device to get connected but its slow. Wifi works perfectly under win10. I have searched everywhere for a resolution with no resolve. Updated firmware did not fix. I think there is conflict with the 2-in-1 having multi network ...

It's likely a good sign that Ubuntu has certified the Lenovo w550s, and Lenovo's have alsways worked flawlessly for me (currently on a t450), but it's always a good idea to test a number your usual tasks from a live USB.

Elementary OS DOES support touch. I have Dell XPS 15 with a touch screen and am running Loki without any special touch modifications. It all works as you would expect (including being annoying when someone touches your screen). I can click, drag, move and do so in combination with modifier keys. I'll be clicking on the "Post Your Answer" by touching the ...
