I have a ThinkPad X230 that I run Fedora on. It's quite solid. You can get an extended battery for it that supposedly lasts almost 20 hours. The stock battery can get close to 8 I think. Mine is closer to 5 now but probably because of age. It used to do a bit better. It's 13" (or 12" I forget), 3 pounds, and easy to travel with.

It's 4 years old now, but they have newer models. I assume they'd be able to run Linux fine. I've not done RAW editing on it but I suppose it would work fine.

Does any other bluetooth device work? phone pairing, music speakers, etc?
i have a lenovo ideapad and it almost never works with bluetooth pairing with my phone or bluetooth speaker
