Hello All!

Post by djexel » Wed Aug 07, 2019 7:58 am

Hello there! I'm new to Linux and just installed Mint on my Lenovo Thinkpad 420i. It was running Windows 10 slow but steady but Mint gave new life to this 8 year old machine. So far the experience has been amazing and I haven't had any issues. This forum looks like a wealth of knowledge so I'm going to dig in and ask some stupid questions at some point. Thank you all in advance for any advice you can give.

Hello djexel,
Welcome to the Linux Mint Forums. Hope you will enjoy and join often.
I use a Lenovo T450 and it and Mint are a winning combo.
Have fun as you learn this great Distro.
