Forum Thread: ThinkPad Helix 2 with Kali?

Well, I was searching for the perfect laptop for pen testing and I found this ThinkPad Helix 2 and all specs were super good, 8 GB ram, Intel Core M-5Y71 processor, 256GB SSD, and also it was 2 in 1, it can convert into a tablet and also into a laptop, but when I investigate its compatibility with Linux most were not so good results, so I get with this, this are drivers for Linux to work well on the helix, but one of my questions is that arch drivers would be compatible to kali Linux?, does anyone here uses that same laptop and can give me some help?,what laptop are you using for kali?, that's all thanks for reading and I wish you could help me.

I use a VM and a cheap acer aspire one for Kali. If Arch runs on it, Kali eventually will. Honestly you could just install Arch and then pull the black arch repos in and have an up and running system very quickly. Arch is more challenging to install and requires much more knowledge of Linux then the baseline Debian installer though.
