    That's not entirely true; the ThinkPad P14s AMD, for example, is certified by Canonical and can come preinstalled with Ubuntu 20.04 (although I don't see the option anymore on the website).
    Thanks, that is certainly new, and wasn't the case back when I had looked into the situation.

    I just bought a Thinkbook 14 G2 ARE machine from Lenovo, which is full AMD (but the wifi is Intel, lol). Everything works flawlessly so far, not even a single proprietary driver was recommended! I'm very pleased for now.

    Actually was referring more to the yoga lines and the new slim 7/ slim7 pro (I think those might be ideaPads)

    So
    /sys/firmware/platform_profile
    is the same as setting

    /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq
    and
    /sys/devices/platform/applesmc.768/fan1_output
    or changing the bios config... so many hardware dependant ways of doing the same thing.

    Will this be ultimately extended to their ultrabook lines? or they are already included in this
    More and more reasons to buy a Lenovo, specially if they ship with new zen3

    Possible tense/verb mismatch typo:

    As noted in that article from December, this platform profile support is allow altering the laptop hardware's operating profile characteristics around power/performance levels and in turn thermal and fan speed behavior
    Perhaps "...support is allowed to alter the..."
