    Man, the bastards at AMD had spoiled us...
    Well it also contains a very nice GPU that can compete with some other mobile dGPUs.
    dGPUs. I think that adds significantly to the cost (plus ultrabooks being expensive, especially from business laptop makers like Dell and Lenovo).

    Or if you're developing using Android Studio - Android GUI IDE + Gradle daemon + emulator + a few browser windows/tabs - all of this definitely exceeds 8 GB of RAM.

    And my laptop RAM is soldered . Now I regret not getting 16 GB in the first place.

    That price tag of 1200$ is idiot gauging, with those specs it should come a disability certificate for the buyer
    It's really not that unreasonable. For very good quality I'd pay twice that. I'm very happy with my Precision 5540, and it's not exactly a cheap system.

    Dell is the only American compay to offer a linux glass/metal body laptop. Linus Torvalds has/had a Dell laptop. But dell offers next to no customization (RAM/OLED/AMD).

    I assume 11th gen intel will get hotter and make more fan noise than the 7nm AMD...

    The only thing I take from your list is the extra RAM for my containers. Don't need any of the rest. Of course, I wouldn't leave Ubuntu also, I develop on Fedora. But having bought computers with Windows my whole life, I really don't care what comes in it, as long as it's not Windows that should be fine.
    Plus, let's stop already with trackpoints and physical buttons for clicks. They get in the way and can trigger random and unexpected behaviours when barely grazed over. These days, gestures on touchpads with combination of fingers movements are very efficient and make buttons outdated.

    Intel + DELL marketing as it best, whoever priced that laptop should fired ...

    1000+ dollars with that specs ??? you really have to hate your money to buy this

    In that price range you can probably get an 4800H with at least a 1650 GPU

    Windows, without running anything sits at 3GB RAM + 3GB cached. Anyone want to check their distro for used RAM?

    Opening Brave Browser with 10 tabs, all with images and JavaScript, and one YouTube video tab is 800MB RAM on Windows.

    Non-expandable RAM. Why do we still have this crap? I do understand when Apple does that because they've always loved to fuck their customers over, but other vendors? No idea.

    You may want to start to speak for yourself only. For some people 128GB for a desktop PC is not enough.
