Apologies if this is too off topic, but you guys are the ones I want to ask.
I recently got a new laptop to run Docker for Windows on, but it has an issue where with VT on, the screen flickers. I’ve tried two of the same model and the problem is the same. I’ve done the obvious stuff like BIOS/video driver updates. Other people in the support forums are having the problem too and the manufacturer is not really responsive to the issue. Ideally they could fix whatever the issue is. But the fact of the matter is the machine shipped with Home (I own a retail Pro product key that I used) and VT disabled by default, so, you can imagine what their urgency level is. I only have two weeks to return this thing so I can’t really wait around for them to decide if they’re gonna admit there is a problem.
Thing is, I’ve found references to another specific manufacturer that has the same problem. So I’m hesitant to just exchange for my “second choice”. And general references to problems on various laptops when you enable VT. So who will come out and state that VT is well-supported?
What laptops do you guys use for Docker for Windows that you’ve had good experiences with? What do the Docker for Windows developers use? If there’s a rule about naming/shaming specific manufacturers (that’s why I’ve been vague), is there any general guidance you can give me (like, “make sure you get something with the ‘Pro-Touring’ version of some graphics chip”)?
I’m looking for something that’s available with a recent CPU (less than two years), 16 GB of RAM, and a high-DPI screen.
Thank you for your time.
