Popey, you should be happy that it was possible to upgrade the RAM in your daughter’s Yoga. Several years ago, I bought an older Yoga for my wife that had 4 GB of RAM. She still uses it now. A while back, I tried to look into upgrading the RAM for her and was disappointed to learn that on these early Yoga models the RAM is soldered on, so it is basically impossible to upgrade.
I have left Windows on the laptop for her because I hadn’t been able to find much promising information online about Linux support for hybrid laptops and I didn’t want to give her a bad impression of Linux since she is used to the screen flipping and the keyboard/touchpad turning on/off as the screen is flipped. Do you know of any Linux distributions that support hybrid laptop features well?
Android Auto sounds nice. Unfortunately, it seems that is impossible to use without the Google Apps which I don’t have on my phone.
