    All the Ryzen laptops have some critical compromise from that list.
    One more asking for "decrippled" products. Exactly why is that not on the market. High demand on "artificial niche" products..

    Marketing-guy: Who is going to want a powerfull amd with adequate gfx card and a decent display?
    Other-Marketing guy: no one - we should rather put the good displays and the good gfx cards to the inferior power hungry intels.
    Boss: Im pleased to have such a competent team. Consider your annual bonus as granted. Arent we good!?

            Replace "Boss" with "Intel marketing guy" and you are set.

              Michael,

              How hot does this laptop get? It looks like I'm probably going to return my very recently purchased Oryx Pro 6 as it's the first System76 laptop I've had since I've been buying them from them since 2009 where it's just uncomfortably warm all of the time...

              In fact, if anyone has recommendations on good laptops for Linux that are also solid (or better) for gaming, I'd love to hear them. I realize this laptop isn't really for gaming, but otherwise it sounds like it provides a really nice experience, and I'm going to need something functional to replace this laptop in the near future.

                Not warm at all, minimal thermal throttling compared to the Dell XPS Intel notebooks I frequently test with.

                  Awesome!

                  How's the battery life been for you? Seems that Linux tends to drain batteries a bit faster than windows so I'd prefer to hear it from a Linux user rather than the official specs.

                    Couple hours for browser / email type workloads but haven't measured it extensively in different scenarios as these days at my desk most often.

                      Michael,
                      I purchased https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Octa-Cor.../dp/B086KKKT15 acer ryzen 7.
                      I used it for 3 weeks. I was unable to suspend-resume the laptop in Ubuntu 20.04 (kernel- stock/mainline/5.7 linux).
                      I tried fedora 32, fedora rawhide, Manjaro 5.7 kernel and I had similar issue suspend-resume.
                      I also tried dual monitor setup using https://www.amazon.com/UtechSmart-Di...tronics&sr=1-5 usb 3.2 gen 2 hub.
                      Its still the same no way to wake after suspend.
                      The windows 10 worked perfectly. I had to return it, coz i dont want deal with this for several months.

                      I am not sure If have to hold out for TigerLake with Thunderbolt 4.0. AMD renoir based laptops are very nice in the price range.
                      Do you have issues with suspend-resume on your lenovo laptop?
