T530 with debian stable / Win7
 
Hello,

I am planning to buy a T530 as a powerful homeoffice solution.

OS should be debian stable and Win7 with GRUB.

I won't use fingerprintreader but I am likely to have an additional SSD. Graphic will be both onboard and additional board.

Does anyone has experience with such a combination and can tell if there are possible problems? Is UEFI working in this combination?

Thanks for your help

UEFI should work. I haven't used this laptop myself, but I've used several with UEFI and they all worked just fine with Debian 7.

Graphics will be the worst part to get working. However, if you stick with Stable and don't install 3rd party kernels, you should be able to get Bumblebee set up and working. I took the easy road and just disabled the onboard graphics so it's ONLY using the Nvidia graphics card on my laptop that has this feature. But it's available in Wheezy, so you should be able to get it to work.
