    I love OpenBSD, and recommend it to anyone who didn’t foolishly purchase a laptop with an nVidia GPU.

    1. 1

      It works fine on my (most?) laptop with a nvidia GPU. I think my laptop thinkpad440p has intel video for non 3d stuff.

        I mean, it works perfectly on mine with an nvidia chip for the most part. I just can’t persuade it to drive an external display

          oh :/ good to know

      2. 1

        I’m about to embark on buying a laptop dedicated to OpenBSD. Would you recommend a dream machine for this purpose that you believe to be a good pairing with this OS? Thanks in advance…

        1. 2

          I am not an expert, and I have only used OpenBSD on one laptop. I think any not-too-new thinkpad should be fine, ideally without an nvidia GPU

          1. 1

            Indeed! I was leaning that way. Not-too-new… I suppose for the reason that OpenBSD has had time to support the older ones? er…?

            1. 2

              For anyone who cares, I ended up going with a Thinkpad T480. I’ll probably write up something regarding my experience with OpenBSD running on it.
