BSD on my new laptop? - berk - 26-11-2016

Hi guys! Haven't posted in here in a long time (years maybe?)

I got a Lenovo y50-70. I know, I'm not part of the masterrace - but I had a few questions about hardware compatibility. Where can I read about supported features? I'd say WiFi and sleep/hibernation is essential.

Thanks in advance

I don't see why sleep or hibernation would not be possible. As long as you have swap and the required software, that should be easy. I found what an Amazon seller purports is the wireless card here:

Any Linux kernel past 3.10 has support for it, according to this StackExchange thread:, and FreeBSD has support according to this thread:

I can't find any information regarding compatibility with any other *BSD.
