Does it?  When I set up CentOS on a 2nd-generation X1 Carbon, the NIC

I'm using a T430s to write this email, but this is almost certainly 
going to be my last Lenovo.  My advice is: If you want a Linux laptop, 
look for someone who actually supports Linux on the laptop. Dell has a 
few, including their XPS 13 developer edition, and they invested a fair 
amount of development time in getting all of the hardware fully 
supported. Purism's Librem laptops are a little more expensive, but 
specifically built for Linux. There are a handful of other vendors that 
primarily support Linux.

Lenovo has been hit-and-miss for a while now, and this isn't showing 
much that's recent:
