I’m running 13″ PCSpecialist Lafite II with an i3-6100U, 2Gb RAM and 120Gb SDD. It’s become my main machine for some light Office work, email handling and web browsing. There is some light relief via Gradio and Audacious, but this is my first Linux Mint 18 installation, utilizing the Cinnamon desktop to get the very best out of the latest hardware on this certified Ultrabook. I’ve dropped the screen resolution down to 1600×900 but otherwise LM18 runs straight out of the box and looks superb with the Mint-Y theme.

I’ll introduce some of my other installations in my next blog posts…Mark
