      Too bad that all these companies are too small to design their own laptop and have to rely on whitebox designs.
      Many AMD based laptops are well supported now, the problems that surrounded them earlier has been fixed with bios (UEFI) updates.
      But one should check how well the laptop supports Linux distributions before one buys one.
      My Ryzen laptop had some quirks and needed some overrides but bois updates has fixed all of them and now everything works out of the box on a recent linux distribution.
      Someone should offer an Ryzen based laptop with preinstalled Linux distribution.

        I have a Ryzen 2500U in a HP convertible, with HP being known for their poor Linux support or just having a lot of proprietary hardware. I got me Manjaro Deepin on it, cause I liked the GUI for touchscreen support and it ran well out of the box. Only thing that doesnt work till today is the proprietary screen rotation sensor.

        Now since the latest linux-next PSR DC Patches for the amdgpu driver, my battery life went up by 2 hours and the thing runs better than on windows.

          Your post lacks important information lol. Please name the brand/model of your laptop.

            on my threadripper+vega64 box right now i can not even install default/standard debian10 because of the missing closed source vega64 firmware.

            for me i only call full open-source hardware like Raptors Engineering IBM power9 cpu based hardware real linux hardware.
            yes they do not have a GPU yet but if they have a GPU in the near future i will not again buy any AMD/INTEL/NVIDIA hardware.

            so whats the point of TUXEDO if it is AMD/INTEL/NVIDIA hardware? it is just NOT Linux hardware at all.
            You have some OpenSource projects going on..
            For instance this PowePC

            Notonly the case, but the motherboard will be released

              right now i have no free money to do a donation to the project
              but i really like it. and i will buy one if it is ever released as a real product
              Well,
              I haven't loss all the expectation, that Michael one day would be doing a article about that project..
              I hope he do, because that project deserves our attention, its software and hardware open source, not some vague words that a lot of projects do
              Its a very good machine, if you look into the specs..
              Yes I also want one powerpc laptop

                Many Ryzen based laptops has great support with a recent bios, most problems with recent linux distributions was related to buggy bios (UEFI).

                  I don't really know if are out there any power8 or 9 with same TDP envelope..
                  They seems really nice to me..
