I wonder if someone can share experience with this PC using LMDE MATE?

Specs:
Lenovo Thinkpad X240
Core i7-4600U (2.10GHz, 4MB, 1600MHz)
Intel HD Grafics 4400

Thanks in advance for share experience.

Gewnerally all Thinkpads perform well with linux. I have the thinkpad X230 and I have tried LMDE with Cinnamon, Ubuntu with Unity, Xubuntu and OpenSuse on this machine and all worked out of the box. I presume this will also be the case on the X240.

Thank you very for your answer.

For me it was especially interesting that you used LMDE Cinnamon on an x230. I am writing the message on an x230 but still with MS XP.

I making tests with an ancient x40 and LMDE MATE (a hint from the LM forum) runs nicely. I only had a bit of problem with the track pointer (viewtopic.php?f=191&t=167893) but could solve it. For the newer PCs I consider to use LMDE Cinnamon. With your information I do not expect problems on the trackpointer-trackpad unit of my x230 and x240.

You do not have accidentally experience with switching between English/German and Japanese using Linux? This is currently my big problem: viewtopic.php?f=199&t=167661
