With much sadness, I will soon need to buy a new laptop to replace the 6 year old Dell Latitude that served me so far.
At the moment I'm undecided between the 15" Mac Book Pro in its standard configuration and the Thinkpad W540 with a few small upgrades but before I commit to one or the other, I'd like to ask you:
Are there any known hardware issues with any of that? Or anything that you found to be terrible, like an uncomfortable keyboard or a poor screen? Is the battery life in either acceptable?
Is there any Linux incompatibility? For example, does wifi work without issues in the macbook (under Fedora)? Does the Thinkpad touchpad work (with multitouch, edge scrolling, etc.) with standard drivers? Does the Thinkpad do Wifi direct properly (as I see the Intel 7260 is the only chip that supports it)?
