    Lenovo X1 Carbon 3rd Generation and Ubuntu 14.04 I did a lot of research on ultrabooks before purchasing this exact model. I am very happy with the build quality and system performance.

One is that a few, bright, stuck pixels started to develop on the screen.Secondly, which is the show stopper, is that most of the time, when the machine wakes up from sleep one of the two issues would occur. Either 1) the whole machine freezes with gray lines running across the whole screen or 2) the screen starts to flicker non-stop. At first, a reboot would fix the issue. Then, slowly, it got worse over time – trying to hard reboot while the screen is frozen actually just brings it back frozen. The support is a joke. I…
