Since we mostly use Thinkpads for testing as well as developing Genode
on, a Thinkpad is the obvious recommandation. Even when using a
Thinkpad there is things to look out for, though:
* the native resolution of the display needs to be available in the
VBE mode list because Genode currently only has a VESA driver and
otherwise you will get a blurry picture
* full support for Intel AMT — some Thinkpads claim to have full AMT
support but do not have it actually (note: AMT is not required for
running Genode but eases debugging by providing a serial connection)
* working ACPI implementation because on some Thinkpads, e.g. T440s,
wrong IRQs are reported via ACPI leading currently to non-working
* able to use a Intel wireless 6xxx oder 7260 card (Lenovo/IBM BIOS
unfortunatly has a whitelist for wireless cards) if you want to
A Thinkpad model that works well in our experience is the X201 (that is
the one Norman mostly uses for his presentations) and from my experience
the T430 does too relating to the list above.
