What's your Budgie Machine?

All of us use Ubuntu Budgie on different machines with different combos CPU/Motherboard/GPU combo, be it desktop or laptop.

In a way to better understand how Ubuntu Budgie behaves on different configurations in regards to compatibility, we would like to know on which machine and with what configuration are you using it :slight_smile:

I’ve seen a couple of issues with freezing up, but overall it’s been very smooth. Ubuntu Budgie
is about 30% more lean than Windows 10.

I’ve had issuea with freezing up and the touchpad being unresponsive when waking up. I’m hopeful the Linux Kernel 5.2 updates will resolve the issue.

Very nice, fast and super light machine. Only the microphone does not work, but i’ve decided to live with it. This is not a Budgie, i don’t think even Ubuntu problem.
Having switched from Mac, the only thing i find a problem is that hibernation does not work with lid close/open.

Nothing special. It came with 4GB of RAM, but I wanted a little more for those times when I needed to use VirtualBox for one thing or another (usually for booting into Win 7 to use Access for business miles in a DB I created so many years ago, so long ago, I have since forgotten how I created all the forms and reports, etc.), so I maxed it out.

I am using ubuntu budgie on an Asus t100taf 2 in 1 tablet. which has a bay trail Intel processor that is 1.33 Ghz. 2Gb of ram and a 32Gb eMMC storage and a 32Gb micro SD card. Display. 10.1" 16:9 IPS HD (1366x768) with Multi-Touch Screen. and Intel HD graphics.
