    Hard for them to lose market share when the competitors are invisible on the market (at least in Italy).
    I am on a hunt for a new well specced laptop and I can tell you that it's hard to find a decent laptop without Nvidia graphics if you want mid-level (or better) performance.
    I may have to adjust with Intel graphics at the end because AMD has too few models available (and those few don't suit me well).

      There are recent Lenovo laptops with Ryzen / Vega APUs.

        nVidia currently has virtually 100% market share when it comes to deep learning and it will take a long time before that changes dramatically. So, Red Hat has to keep supporting nVidia for the time being even if ROCm picks up.

          The only model with Ryzen/Vega in Italy seems to be the following one: https://www.lenovo.com/it/it/laptops...D/p/81FB007NIX
          Not really what I am looking for; I look more for top processor, 16GB RAM and 512GB M.2 NVMe PCIe SSD; and better if dedicated graphics (not necessarily top model). Also, DisplayPort for my 4k monitor.

            not sure what kind of collaboration is going on. article mentions only hmm and nvidia's part of collaboration on that consisted of "being interested in"

            they are investing in blob too. they develop upstream code which only works with blob

                  How about Alienware 15":

                  https://www.dell.com/it-it/shop/note...configurations

                  Granted I don't know how linux friendly they are, but one can have them with coffee lake cpu and RX 570 dgpu.

                    Anyway we're going a bit offtopic Thanks for trying to help though.

                      This could be a valid option I guess (doesn't have an i7 processor but it's fine). Not a fan of gaming laptops look, but I've seen worse models in that sense.
                      Anyway, I'll wait one more month before deciding; the UK based PCSpecialist LafiteIII laptop also looks good and has some advantages (although no discrete GPU).
                      Thanks for the help.
