Best Ubuntu Laptop: 9 Top picks for 2017 (April Update). Ubuntu для ноутбука


Best Ubuntu Laptop: 9 Top picks for 2017 (April Update)

I will go straight to the point with this one. Find the best Ubuntu laptop is not easy – even finding a good laptop for Windows can take some time. And when we add compatibility issues and varying degrees of Ubuntu support for 15.xx and 16.xx releases, we can find ourselves crossing fingers hoping that the trackpad and WiFi work out-of-the-box.

On the other hand, Ubuntu is the best Linux distro when it comes to finding a compatible laptop. There are plenty of reviews and guides for the most popular guides. Ubuntu community might not have a well-maintained wiki with recent laptops (as ArchLinux does), but there are a lot more easy step-by-step guides for Ubuntu users.

In this lengthy post, I’ll cover what is important when searching for the best laptop for Ubuntu and what are the common problematic areas. Then, I’ll list out the best Ubuntu laptops with guides: best laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed, best Chromebooks for Ubuntu and the best Windows laptops and MacBooks with good Ubuntu support.

What we should look for in an Ubuntu laptop?

First things first. To find the best Ubuntu laptop, we’ll need to know what we’re looking for and what we should avoid. I’ll break down specs one by one and outline what are our options.

Performance

Major Processor

Starting with Kernel 4.3 – found in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, Linux supports Skylake graphics which are generally superior to their Broadwell and Haswell counterparts. Therefore, unless you have limitations of a particular Ubuntu version, go for the latest Ubuntu release with newest Kernel and a 6th generation Intel CPU.

Apart from that, judging a mobile processor for Linux is quite straightforward.

General CPU performance guidelines for Ubuntu:

  • Low-end: N2840 , N3050, N3150
  • Lower-mid-range: i3-5005U, i3-5010U, i3-5020U
  • Upper-mid-range: i7-5500U, i7-6500U, i5-6300HQ
  • High-end: i7-4720HQ, i7-4770HQ, i7-5700HQ, i7-6700HQ, i7-6820HK
Major Graphics card
Integrated

Integrated graphics are mostly problem-free. But if you’ll be running Ubuntu (under 16.04 “Xenial Xerus”) with older kernels (below 4.3.x), you’ll need to apply a small fix to enable Intel 6th-gen graphics by adding i915.preliminary_hw_support=1 to boot parameters.

Integrated graphics is a viable option for the majority of Ubuntu users. In short, integrated video chip is enough for everyone except those that really need a dedicated graphics card – which is up next.

Dedicated

In 2017, dedicated graphics almost always means having a Nvidia video card.

And there is one huge issue with Nvidia cards – lack of proper Nvidia Optimus support. Nvidia Optimus is used to switch off Nvidia graphics card and to fall back on integrated graphics chip to preserve battery life. Without this technology, you could expect only a few hours of battery runtime because a dedicated graphics card is one of the most power-hungry components in a laptop.

For many years, Nvidia has given little to no attention to the Linux community. That even resulted in Linus calling it “the single worst company we’ve ever dealt with”.

But there is a happy ending – well… sort of. Nvidia’s official drivers (called Nvidia Prime) offer decent manual support for switching GPUs and there are a few 3rd party solutions to the whole Optimus debacle.

There are 2 main ways to use Nvidia graphics on Ubuntu:

Both of these drivers have not been updated for quite some time but they work decently well though not as seamlessly as if you were using Windows/MacOS.

But if you want to be safe, before you buy some multimedia/gaming Ubuntu laptop, research if someone got their video card properly working on that exact model.

And if you’re wondering, it is not that hard to figure out what GPU will fit your needs. Nvidia GTX 950M is a nice step up from integrated chips but GTX 960M should be your starting option if you’re into gaming. Finally, Nvidia GTX 970M and 980M are top-of-the-line cards for latest gaming releases. For professional work, even if you work with video and your software can take advantage of Cuda cores, there isn’t much reason to go above 970M.

Minor RAM

For the cheapest models, going for 4 GB is a decent starting point. I would not recommend going for anything less than that even if you want a budget machine.

For software developers, who make up a large part of Ubuntu and Linux users in general, 8 GB should be mandatory. 16 GB should be a requirement if you can and want to spend over $1000 for a Ubuntu laptop. 16 GB is best for heavy CPU multitaskers: using heavy IDEs, keeping a lot of tabs open in a browser, running a server with a database etc. Of course, it goes without saying that if you are working with virtual machines (VM) – 16 GB should be your starting point.

Minor Screen

There are 2 key points to cover when judging screens for an Ubuntu laptop: compatibility issues and general quality metrics.

Possible screen issues
High DPI

Any recent Ubuntu version supports High DPI displays but desktop environments/shells (as Gnome and Unity) and various applications have a lot of catching up to do for a good HiDPI experience.

A few resources you should check for fixing :

Touchscreen

Touchscreens are generally universally supported in Ubuntu. There are rarely any problems with basic touchscreen usage. But there can be issues when there are more than 3 points of contact (the same rule applies to many touchpads). To be certain that it will work with your laptop, you should check via Google if there are posts on various forums or blogs of people installing Ubuntu (or even other Linux distros). The official documentation Ubuntu provides is rather limited and mostly outdated.

What makes a screen good?

When it comes to displays, there are so many metrics that can be measured. But for most use cases, some can be almost completely ignored. That includes maximum refresh rate (unless you want Nvidia G-Sync, which can work on Linux), response rates, low-level flickering and many others.

80% of what makes a screen good depends on 5 metrics. These are: panel, resolution, brightness, contrast and color gamut coverage (in order of importance).

Quite good Very good
Panel IPS IPS
Resolution 1920×1080 3200×1800
Brightness (avg.) 260 nits 330 nits
Contrast 800:1 1200:1
Adobe sRGB 80% 95%

The 2 most important of these can be easily found on any page reviewing or selling laptops. Worth noting, if there is no mention of an IPS panel – 95% it is not IPS. A seller not mentioning an IPS panel is the same as a realtor not mentioning that a house has a pool. Don’t worry, they’ll let you know in the first 5 sentences.

Minor Connectivity

This section is especially tricky. It varies a lot on a case by case basis but there are a few general rules of thumb to follow if you want to at least problematic Wi-Fi/Bluetooth cards:

  • Avoid Broadcom
  • If someone got their Wi-Fi working on a model you’ve bought – try to find what exact drivers they were using. I’ve found some issues with some later versions of Atheros drivers.
  • If worst comes to worst, you’ll need to get an USB Wi-Fi

Great additions

What would be nice-to-have?

Recommended SSD

There is one reason to stay with a basic HDD setup. It is their ridiculously low price for their size storage. But if you do not absolutely need 1 TB drive or you are not very limited by your budget – I would heavily recommend getting an SSD. The best laptop for Ubuntu definitely would have one.

Best Ubuntu laptops

Best laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed

Dell XPS 13 Developer Edition

1

Best laptop with Ubuntu pre-installed

There are several configurations for this Dell laptop. They range between $1100 and $2500. Dell XPS 13 would be the first laptop with Ubuntu pre-installed that I would recommend. The main drawbacks of this series is a lack of models with dedicated graphics and only a single option in display size – there is no Developer Edition for Dell XPS 15. Though it can be a good idea getting it and installing Ubuntu on your own – I’ll discuss that in a bit.

Overall, these models are well-balanced: ranging from {i5-6200U, 8GB, 256GB PCIe SSD, 1080p} to {i7-6560U, 16GB, 1TB PCIe SSD, 1800p touchscreen}. Intel Core i7-6560U models have Intel Iris Graphics 540 which is one of the better integrated-video chips out there. Dell XPS series has great battery life. That is rarely the case with other Ubuntu laptops as most others often are just rebranded desktop-replacement class machines.

” I skipped irrelevant choices and select fields with a single option. ”

There are other configurations available, but I chose this one to be one of the the best you could find for around $1000. It comes with a dual-core i7-7500U processor which is one of the best out there within 2 core processors. The only update I would consider is getting 16 GB of RAM instead of 8 GB I have selected. But the seller asks for $100 for that additional 8 GB stick which you can buy on your own for $50.

Most Ubuntu users either love or hate System76 laptops. They have mostly rebranded Clevo laptops that are quite overpriced compared to other brands. On the other hand, they’re the best-known brand providing laptops with Ubuntu pre-installed. And they’re alright if you’d like to skip the hassle and you don’t need long battery life.

But if you’re OK with buying a Windows laptop and moving it to Ubuntu on your own – you can save $200 – $400 compared to System76 notebooks. I’ll cover Windows laptops with good Linux compatibility in just a few minutes.

Best Chromebooks for Ubuntu

Acer Chromebook 15

Best cheap Chromebook for Ubuntu

Intel Core i5-5200U | 4 GB RAM | 32 GB SSD | 15.6″ 1920×1080

Acer model sits in the middle of the Chromebook market. Unlike cheaper notebooks, it has an Intel Core processor and a larger 15.6″ display. Yes, it is a more performant laptop but it is still a good option only if you’re OK with its limited 32GB drive and 4GB of RAM. It is nowhere near a professional-level laptop but it’s a good option if you want to have Ubuntu on a laptop for working on small tasks on the go.

HP Chromebook 11 G5

Cheapest Chromebook for UbuntuIntel Celeron N3060 | Intel HD | 4GB RAM | 16 GB SSD

HP Chromebook 11 G5 at first glance might be seen as a weak device for running Ubuntu, however, even its predecessor HP Chromebook 11 G4 is capable of running Ubuntu smoothly. However, some optimization of Ubuntu OS is necessary. If you read and apply suggested changes to your laptop from optimization guides, HP Chromebook 11 G5 will be a great portable Chromebook/Ubuntu machine.

Best Windows laptops for Ubuntu

Best 2-in-1 convertible laptop for Ubuntu

i7-6500U | HD 520 | 8GB RAM | 500 GB SSD | 13.3″ IPS 1920×1080

This model is very similar to HP Envy 13 but it comes in a 2-in-1 form factor.

On HP website, you can configure the model to your needs. Importantly, this model has Intel 802.11ac WLAN and Bluetooth [2×2] card which runs problem-free with Ubuntu. Also, if you would like to find a good deal, there are some refurbished HP Spectre x360 models.

Worth noting, if you’re running Ghostery/Disconnect browser extensions, you might not see “Customize and Buy” button and in general HP website will be not properly working. In that case, open it in a new private/incognito browser window (CTRL+SHIFT+N) or disable these plugins for HP.com.

What doesn’t work:

  • Screen orientation sensor

Best Ubuntu laptop under $1500

i7-6700HQ | 960M 2GB | 16GB RAM | 500 GB SSD (PCIe) | 15.6″ Touch IPS 3840×2160 | 5h 40min

Update. 2016 September. Clarification: this is a great laptop but there are some serious problems with 16.04 LTS. A kernel downgrade is needed. I’ve included it for its (relatively) flawless installation on 15.10. For now, I’ll still keep it on this list for that reason but if it will face similar issues with 16.10 release – that’s no longer acceptable and I’ll remove it from the recommended laptop list.

This is a great well-rounded machine if you need a larger 15″ laptop. It’s a bit ironic how I’m linking to Microsoft Signature Edition even when you’ll be using Ubuntu instead. Of course, this Asus can be used as a dual-boot gaming machine as Windows still offers better gaming performance and support than the best Linux-to-Windows emulators.

It has a upper-mid-range i7-6700HQ CPU, 16 GB DDR5 RAM, 512 GB NVMe PCIe SSD, GTX 960M, Thunderbolt III (via USB Type C), 3 USB 3.0 ports, HDMI and 4K IPS touchscreen. Its display is not as good as Google Pixel, Dell XPS or Razer Blade Stealth. But it should be enough if you’re not planning to use outdoors on a regular basis – it has a relatively low average brightness of ~250 nits. Meanwhile, its contrast and color space are slightly above average.

Best laptop for Ubuntu under $2,000

i7-7700HQ | 1050 | 16GB RAM | 500 GB SSD (PCIe) | 3840×2160

There might be a reason why Dell did not release a Developer Edition of the 15-inch XPS. It needs a few fixes and additional configuration to make it work with Ubuntu. At the same time, this model is so good that it might be worth it to spend a bit of extra effort.

In short, the main difference between this Dell XPS 15 and ASUS ZenBook Pro above is the screen. Dell XPS 15 has a far better one:

  • Brightness: 400 nits vs 250 nits
  • Contrast: 1600:1 vs 850:1
  • Adobe RGB coverage: 70% vs 60%

Also, Dell XPS 15 has one fewer USB port (1x USB 3.1C & 2x USB 3.0).

Best MacBooks for Ubuntu

Ubuntu used to run well on MacBook Air of 2013. But 2015 model (the current one) is not running as flawlessly. Though, the most important problem of non-working WiFi adapter can be solved.

And if you don’t need to remove OS X (from now on, MacOS), try installing it side-by-side to OS X. You also could install Ubuntu on a MacBook Pro Retina (with MacOS El Capitan).

Guide for other distros

This is pretty much it when it comes to choosing a laptop for Ubuntu. Of course, I still recommend checking whether anyone has successfully installed Ubuntu on a laptop you’ve picked if it is not one of these models. That will save you a lot of time.

This guide was obviously focused on Ubuntu. But if you have other distros on your mind – check out my guide to Tails notebooks or a slightly longer article on getting the best laptop for Linux, in general.

I Want an Ubuntu Notebook!

Posted on January 16, 2015by Jim MendenhallTags: Ubuntu

Dear HP, Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, ASUS, and Acer,

I want to buy an inexpensive, low to medium-end notebook that comes preinstalled with Ubuntu. I want it to have hardware that is supported by the latest Linux kernel so I can put any GNU/Linux distribution on it that I want. I want it to look nice, you know, like all those fancy HP Stream notebooks and Chromebooks that you’re selling. I want it to cost $300 to $450.

I was recently looking for a new notebook computer to take with me on the road, to meetings, and for occasional use around the house. I do most of my compute-intensive work on desktops at home and work, keep most of my media in the cloud, and spend a lot of time connected to remote systems, so I don’t need a high-end notebook. I spent quite a bit of time looking online and couldn’t find a notebook that seemed to meet my needs and have good Linux support. There are systems out there with good Linux support, but I didn’t want to spend $800 to $1600 for a System76 laptop because they were all overkill for what I needed to do (and too expensive).

I could have purchased a Windows notebook and installed Ubuntu, but pretty much everything in my price range was too big and had poor Linux support for at least one major component. I don’t want a notebook that has a low-quality, unsupported WiFi card or trackpad. I don’t want to haul around a heavy, bulky and ugly notebook either. I want something lightweight that looks decent, like an Acer Chromebook or an HP Stream.

I ended up buying another Chromebook, the Toshiba Chromebook 2 with a 13-inch full HD display and 4 GB of RAM … for $330. It’s a pretty nice computer. It looks nice, has a great screen, and reasonable build quality. It’s no Macbook Pro, that’s for sure, but it is also about $1000 cheaper, so I’m pretty forgiving about any minor issues (like some very minor IPS glow on the screen, and the creaking sound the case makes when you push on it). I found that I can do a lot of work on a Chromebook, but I keep wishing that it ran Ubuntu instead of Chrome OS. I know that I can “install” Ubuntu inside of Chrome OS with Crouton, but I’d really just like a system that I don’t have to fuss with, hack, or put into “developer mode” – something that just runs Ubuntu out of the box.

Here’s the thing: I know you can do it!

Most of you already sell Linux computers in other countries (and Linux based Chromebooks in the US and UK). HP and Dell already sell Ubuntu notebooks in China. Dell, HP, Acer and Packard Bell all sell Linux notebooks in Russian online and retail stores. Linux notebooks are sold in India, Ukraine, Brazil, etc. You allow consumers in other countries to buy your notebooks with Linux, why can’t you sell me one here in America?

So, what exactly does this notebook that I want to buy look like? How is it different from your current offerings? Well, quite honestly, you’re already 98% of the way there. Here’s what you need to do to make a great Ubuntu notebook that I would rush out to buy today:

  1. Take one of your existing Chromebook or Stream notebook designs.
  2. Replace any Linux-unfriendly hardware (Wifi cards, trackpads, etc).
  3. Configure it with at least a 32 GB SSD and 4 GB of RAM.
  4. Install Ubuntu.

For bonus points, let consumers configure these laptops with a Core i3 processor or bigger SSDs. For extra bonus points, make an orange and purple version!

Now, I realize that for a notebook with slightly higher specs than a Chromebook, I’ll need to pay more than the $150 to $350 that you currently charge for Chromebooks and low-end Windows computers. These Ubuntu notebooks probably won’t sell as many units as Chromebooks either, so you might need to charge more. That’s okay, I’m willing to pay a small premium. I’d gladly pay $300 to $450 for one of these notebooks. In fact, the first Dell computer I ever bought was a Dell Inspiron 1420N with Ubuntu … just in case you don’t think people like me will put our money where our mouths are.

Sincerely,Jim Mendenhall
