Been looking to get a low powered 2-in-1 as a Linux Tablet device. I want to be able to upgrade/repair the device battery and storage as a minimum. When I talked about this to another group online, they said Intel got rid of the Core M. What is the modern equivalent of the Core M? And is it good?
Been looking at the Latitude 7275 and various HP convertibles for the Core M models.
Well, if you’re not running a full blown desktop, and no server tasks, I think Linux can probably operate fairly decently with only 2G of RAM if you only use a few tabs in a browser. It’s clearly not meant for power users. Remember that RAM needs to be constantly refreshed which means more RAM uses more battery. As this is an open source hardware and software project, that may have been a conscious choice to extend the battery life.
