Several questions about hibernation, suspend, and battery life of the M3800 developer edition:
Many thanks for any light you can shed. The M3800 is a leading candidate for a planned purchase in the next few months, but I'm in need of more info.
There have been previous iterations of the m3800 so are you sure that page is referring to the new developer edition? I was under the impression everything worked bar the thunderbolt port.
I am not certain, but the page does refer to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS being pre-installed by the manufacturer, and I was under the impression that it was only the latest version which shipped with Ubuntu. Here is the link:
The relevant text is this:
"The Dell Precision M3800 laptop with the components described below has been awarded the status of certified pre-install for Ubuntu . . .
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit
Pre-installed by manufacturer
Hibernate is not working on this system
Dell: X69 (UEFI)"
