I have been using Thinkpads for Linux for years.
X200 (currently running C7)
X220 (was Fedora, now W10)
X240 (currently Fedora 24)
X260 to be purchased shortly to take over the Fedora role

No problems, in fact I suspect that there must be Fedora developers
using Thinkpads since they seem to just work
