    NUC-like computers with AMD Renoir have multiplied a lot recently, e.g. from ASUS, Gigabyte, ASRock and a few others, but they are still somewhat hard to find, except maybe the ASUS PN50, which was the first model available.

    It is likely that there will be even more NUC-like computers with AMD Cezanne, but they will probably not appear before the autumn, so if you want one, you might be able to get it only by the end of the year.

    Should I regret buying a CPU generation that will be old news in one month time?

    I do not think that you need to worry about that.

    Better CPUs continue to appear all the time, so whatever you buy it will not stay the best for long.

    Obviously, a 4700U would have been much more valuable one year ago, but it is still a decent CPU, which should be OK for many years.

    While I have succeeded to upgrade my desktop to a 5900X, I am still using without problems a laptop with a Skylake from 2016.

    Because it was the top model of Skylake in 2016, it still has completely acceptable performance today, even if, of course, I would never buy a new computer now, with this level of performance.

    The same should be true for a 4700U in a few years.

    In the worst case, if you will long for a better Cezanne CPU later this year, you can still attempt to sell the 4700U laptop, to recover a part of the expenses.

    It is likely that Cezanne CPUs will be difficult to buy at least during the next few months, so having a new laptop right now can be worthwhile enough.

    How long does it survive on battery? As I've seen the detail your model can have 40, 51 or 68 watt-hr options - so it is also important to know which battery you have. My Inspiron 5405 have 40 wh battery which is too small but Inspiron 5401 (almost same dell but intel-based) have same 40wh but lasts way longer (5hrs on amd vs 8 on intel)

    No kidding. After many months of "hunting" I finally gave up and decided to wait for 5800u. They're pretty The amount of soldered 8GB single channel crap dwarfs the ever-sold-out acceptable products in the 13-14 inch range.

    So, I'd like an option post 3xxxG series. What are they?

    I am willing to spend big bucks ($2500 or more) on a Zen3 laptop with GDDR5 RDNA2 that lighter than my current laptop. I'll be patient enough to check Linux support before ordering. So many people complaining on social media or forums about bad Linux support but they never check before buying. I hope that i don't have to wait more than 2 years for Rembrandt.

    I've tested the waters with my relatively cheap Dell Latitude 5495 (Ryzen 5 Pro). Got it for ~$780 USD in South Africa with customs duties and tax. There was no option to not include Windows which I never used, so it could have lowered the cost. It came with M.2 drive so I just added an extra 8GB RAM. Dell gave official Linux support. Overall I am very happy with it, the keyboard is awesome and the build quality is extremely good considering the price.

    My first choice was an expensive HP Spectre X360, but wasn't sure about Linux support and I needed a laptop urgently but could not get the X360 without importing it myself. I tried contacting distributors that do not sell to general public nobody supplied a Zen based model at the time.

    I have noticed many people are going the WSL2 route just to get better hardware support. I believe in open source and hope that Zen3 and RDNA2 works as well as Zen+ and Vega worked. Having full hardware support in mainline kernels improves quality of life and productivity.

    Edit: Added Rembrandt to avoid confusion with currently announced series.

    Given that it's still a Vega-based GPU, I'd assume not. But, dav1d should be more than fast enough to decode in software, without cranking up the CPU fan too high. Unless you're planning on watching a lot while on battery, it's likely a non-issue.

    Possible grammar issue:

    Given the successes of the Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors and improving Linux support, very excited for them and intend to pickup a Ryzen 5000 series notebook for Linux testing/benchmarking.
    Should there be a subject there...e.g. we are very excited?

    Will the new mobile processors support USB4 and thus Thunderbolt?
