[ale] Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga 11E



Looks like the Lenovo 11E is ok.  Be wary of Lenovo Yoga laptops (
http://www.pcworld.com/article/3122593/computers/some-lenovo-pcs-wont-install-linux-due-to-storage-woes-not-microsoft-evildoing.html
). In general, my experience with linux on Lenovo has been pretty good.  My
current daily driver is a Lenovo R-series Thinkpad. I installed Debian
Slink on it without a hitch.
