For my birthday last year, I decided that the time had come. Time for me to finally purchase a new laptop to replace my aging 2013 MacBook Air (RIP). Apple had slowly pushed me back to Linux, so I went with the excellent Lenovo X1 Carbon, whose 5th generation had come out earlier in 2017. It arrived nearly a month later. When the weekend came around, I flashed a USB drive with the latest Arch Linux Live image, rolled up my sleeves, and got to work.
