    Why not? It's fun,... But, seriously, I switched to Wayland, because of input bugs in JetBrains products under X11. Now my screensharing doesn't work in Slack. However, Wayland FTW!

        Raven Ridge is 2000 and 3000 series APU, i got an RR in this laptop i am typing from.
        It's also some Athlon 2X0GE and 3000G
        I have an Athlon 200GE in my NAS.

        You are right I missed the 2000 series. I think that even 2000 series mobiles are Raven Ridge only . Mobile 3000 series is already Picasso a Raven Ridge Refresh.

          Your right 3000 is Picasso, i always thought of them as RR2 when in fact there Picasso.

            Renior seems to have good battery life in some laptops, Raven Ridge battery life wasn't to good.

            Performance competitive with Ryzen (though lower) with 40-50% better battery life. Pretty neat in my book.

              I have a similarly outfitted Flex 5 14ARE05 model. It has been running nicely since upgrading the kernel but one annoyance I have when using it as my main workhorse is when I plug in to external monitor and keyboard and want to keep the lid closed. I have not found a way to have it start from the keyboard -- sometimes even from sleep state. I always have to open it up to start or wake it. Even the case button on the right edge doesn't seem to wake it. I wish it could be made to behave similar to my work macbook where if I have it connected to power, it will wake up or boot on usb activity.

              Otherwise I'm pretty satisfied. Now I'm looking into active stylus options for recreational art or maybe note taking....

              I still wish I could pay more and have some non-gaming (light, slim) 4000-level ryzen laptops with High DPI displays (2.5K+ even) but it's feeling more and more like Intel / apple have a deal with OEMs or have locked up the supply chain.

                I'm really hoping to see a higher end option. Dual channel ram slots for 32-64gb, a higher than rtx-2060 video, and a decent display and solid build a quality.

                All the Ryzen laptops have some critical compromise from that list.

                  LinusTechTips just posted a review of a Ryzen 4000 series laptop from HP that gets 14(!) hours of battery life: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V3uB12mRrU Considering this and the reviews of the ASUS G14 (a gaming laptop with battery life in the thin-and-light range!), I think whatever single 4000-based laptop that site was testing against is not representative of how the 4000 series actually performs in many/most systems. They really should have included more 4000-based laptops in the review, rather than just one laptop that doesn't match what the Ryzen chips are actually capable of.

                    I have that too. Once you are really trying to buy/find some...

                      A bit bigger screen in the Acer one with a bit smaller battery and let's not forget the price difference. The dell notebook is premium one, costing at least 50% more than the acer counterpart.
