    In addition to what sandy8925 said, convertible laptops also have accelerometers when you fold them into tablet mode, so you can hold them vertically.

    Yes, it's mainly used for detecting if the device falls (earlier used to stop spinning hard drives to protect them) , and for screen rotation in tablets.

    Well, I still don't see much evidence of better support. It's been a few years of Ryzen CPUs and success, but AMD's Linux support is still pretty bad (although it may be improving).

    Finally. Hopefully someone can build a test kernel.

    This is excellent news, looks like soon I'll be able to use my laptop to its full extent (well, minus the fingerprint reader, but that's a different matter...)

    Hopefully one of them is a Thinkpad with specs similar or better than the X1 Extreme Gen 2
