Hi - I didn't see my laptop in the list so looked everything up. It seems the Lenovo Ideapad 131 151KB supports everything but SSD. I assume I would have to replace my internal hard drive with the SSD since an external SSD would, I assume, get bottlenecked by any USB connection to the motherboard. I need Qubes for only a few select simple tasks that require few resources, so my question is - could I get by under these conditions or is SSD considered absolutely necessary? Thanks for any advice!
Hi qubes does work without ssd (my first installs did not have one). But speed, especially booting-times (xen & vm's) are 3-4 times longer. If you open a temporary vm every minute, that is annoying, but for 'normal' use no ssd is required to my best knowedge. Just a bit of patience :) Bernhard -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
