Customized Laptop – Lenovo ThinkPad T460S
This is a customized Lenovo ThinkPad T460S, a very nice, fast, thin, and light machine, perfect for home/work/school use.
This machine has a back lit keyboard, newer wifi and bluetooth, and a 1080P FHD display.
**note – This machine has computrace ENABLED in BIOS, however, after EXTENSIVE research and reading multiple papers on the topic, due to the way computrace functions, it CANNOT work with Linux installed on the machine. This means it cannot even disable itself if the user paying for the service stops paying (which would happen if windows were installed). IT CANNOT FUNCTION due to Linux being installed, as it ONLY works with Windows. Therefore NONE of its features will actually do anything. It does NOT cause any issue with the machine, the only noticeable thing is if you enter the BIOS, it tells you it is enabled. CHD takes full responsibility for purchasing the machines legitimately, and guarantees that they will not have any issues due to this BIOS setting, if anything happens because of it, we will offer a full refund and/or replacement of the machine. We are 100% certain it will never be an issue.
**This Machine also has a few very unnoticeable ‘light dot blemishes’ on the display, difficult to even get a picture of because they’re so not noticeable.

Software / Operating System Details
All CHD Re-builds come with LINUX installed as the OS. Generally the Linux installation will be customized Ubuntu 22.04 with Cinnamon Desktop. The OS is configured to make it an EASY SWITCH from WINDOWS.
All systems have the ‘computrace’ tracking software disabled at the BIOS level (when possible), But even if computrace is not disabled at the BIOS level, installing linux makes Computrace useless, as it relies upon Windows-based rootkit software to function. as well as ‘Intel Management Engine’ disabled at the BIOS level (when possible). (These BIOS additions allow 3rd party access to the system, and therefore have been disabled by default whenever possible. Each system’s specifications will include details where necessary.)
Ubuntu Desktop has been CUSTOMIZED to ‘feel’ like Windows, for users switching from Windows, it should be a really nice and simple switch.
Theme customizations for ease of use, and clean visual appeal. Also modifications to other settings for ease of function and better overall feel.
Qortal Core and Qortal UI pre-installed, along with a startup configuration for the Qortal Core, so it will start automatically, and the Qortal Core icon will show on the taskbar. Default Qortal settings.
CHD’s own ‘auto-fix-qortal’ scripts setup to run automatically both at reboot and every 5 days at 1:01 AM, to ensure your Qortal software is always at the latest release, and if it isn’t, FIXES IT FOR YOU.
Power management customization to prevent machine from ‘sleeping’ so that Qortal Core can run without issues. Also configured to ‘do nothing’ when laptop lid is closed, to allow Qortal to keep running even while screen is closed.
Default Software Installed (much more than what is listed):
- Audio/video player software – VLC media player (best media player and converter that exists in CHD opinion)
- Open Office (Document, spreadsheet, database, presentation editor)
- Chromium Browser (set to default browser) – with hardware acceleration enabled.
- GiMP image manipulation software (photoshop alternative)
- Imagick (vector graphics editor)
- Qortal Core and Qortal UI (including ‘launchers’ in the panel and on the desktop)
