I recently ordered a laptop - ASUS UX430UA, which has the latest Coffee Lake i7-8550U CPU. I was wondering whether Antergos is a good choice for these kind of devices. Obviously I expect basic features such as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to work, but I’m more interested in knowing whether power-saving optimisations will be good. I specifically didn’t opt for the NVIDIA GPU as I’ve heard Optimus can be a pain on Linux. But I do want to get good battery life and not have the CPU work too hard when it doesn’t need to and so on.
So my question is whether anyone has used Antergos on a laptop and whether power-saving optimisations are any good? If so how does it compare to Windows 10 and/or other distros like Ubuntu? Thanks.
