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: http://www.ebay.com/p/lenovo-y50-70-genuine-wireless-wifi-card-04x6007-7260ngw-tested/2069332937?rmvSB=true
Any Linux kernel past 3.10 has support for it, according to this StackExchange thread: http://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/160029/how-do-i-enable-kernel-to-load-intel%c2%ae-wireless-7260-card-on-nuc-dc3217iye-with-d, and FreeBSD has support according to this thread: https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/42515/page-1
I can't find any information regarding compatibility with any other *BSD.
