    I don't miss my time on 4:3 CRTs, so no need to go back to that full screen workflow.
    That depends very much on the task. Many software are impractical when used in small windows

    I'm writing from what looks like the exact same model, a Clevo NL50RU, except mine is Tuxedo rebranded.
    It has the same specs, same keyboard, same inputs on the side (position included) or hinges.

    I picked 1x16 GB at purchase and added the exact same one for 2x16 GB 3200Mhz (both are unsoldiered), and I ordered without data storage, to which I added a NVMe PCIe M.2 SSD for blazing fast accesses. Both because they were less expansive separately.
    And it's absolutely flying.

    Tuxedo has also developed a nice BIOS, the keyboard backlight is supported (fn keys included for colors or brightness), the Tuxedo fan control, some drivers and a few other utilities.
    In addition, you can get many different keyboard layouts, and a nice Tux for Super key, that looks better than the one on the Pangolin.
    If this is indeed the same model, I definitely recommend it. I don't know if System76 has some custom tools or drivers but they might be interchanged with Tuxedo's. Worth a try.

    What? Just a small list of current well known and regarded laptops from the main brands with 16:10
    Spectre X360 14, Dell XPS 13 and 15, Razer Book 13, Hp Envy 14, Asus Studiobook Pro X, Lenovo IdeaPad Duet 3, MSI GF7, and the list goes on and on...

    When you do any work that requires walls of text, but you are bound to a Laptop (which is quite common), 16:10 is a godsent, you get much more on a single screen, however the laptop has literally the same size.

    A bit late now that Intel Xe graphics is widely available.

    Actually other manufacturers are catching up, because 16:10 is pretty awesome. The Dell XPS are 16:10. Razer is making 16:10 productivity laptops. Huawei, and the list is growing...

    All the major manufacturers have moved to 16:10 and 3:2 now. Especially as Linux users are more likely to do actual work on their machines makes this all the more important.

    Those silly marketing strategies to sell you a Ryzen with a Radeon unit rather than a Vega one...

    As usual, most companies that sell laptops with AMD cpus, always downgrade the specs when it's an AMD laptop vs an INTEL laptop.

    14" lemur(intel cpu) = 73wh battery , ports: 1× USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A, 1× USB 3.0 Type-A, 1 × USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C / Thunderbolt™ 4, MicroSD Card Reader

    15" pangolin (AMD cpu) = 49wh battery , ports: 1× USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A, 1 × USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, 2× USB 2.0 Type-A, MicroSD Card Reader

    The one to blame here is probably Clevo and NOT system76, but still, this is how these laptops compare.
