Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Distribution: Slint64-14.2 on Lenovo Thinkpad W520
Avoid Optimus technology if you can and more generally, be careful with switchable graphics as they probably will need some additional components like bumblebee. If you selected a model, try to get the exact model/type of the GPU and make a search with that in the forums here at LQ to see if there are problems mentioned.
Does anyone have experience with the AMD hardware.
My Thinkpad Edge is an like an older and smaller version of this. 13" screen AMD Turion processor and radeon HD 4200 graphics. Worked fine with Slackware 13.1 and 13.37. As noted in previous post, only wifi needed a bit of work (had to download drivers). Not made the upgrade to 14.0 yet, but I have every confidence that it will be fine.
