    I would also recommend to check screen quality - not just the ratio. Brightness and colorspace coverage. In 600 Euro laptop there is a big chance to have screen 200-300nit brightness and 60% of sRGB instead of 400+ nit and 97-99% on good screens. And for the 16:10 ratio there are not many screens on the market to replace. Dell XPS have bright color accurate screens, the only point is the price and CPUs stuck forever in 14nm for 15" version... For 16:9 it is not an issue - I got inexpensive MSI modern 15 with bad screen and got a replacement sharp IGZO panel for 100EU on aliexpress. But it will take more time for 16:10 panels to become mainstream. Unfortunately.

      Slapping a 1080p screen on a laptop is just lazy in 2021.
      Depends on the screen and the laptop...

        They seemed to have avoided mentioning anything about PCIE connections. So I'm gonna assume 3rd gen?

        Well, the one before the most recent one anyway.

        Better to wait for Ryzen laptops with those, I think, at this point.

        Unless you're already upgrading from something really old and you need an upgrade anyway.

          Assuming it's the Clevo I mentioned above, from Tuxedo website:
          1x SATAIII or NVMe / PCIe Gen3 x4

              2 USB 2.0 ports? Why? All 4 ports on my late 2015 laptop are USB 3.0, how much cost does it add to have USB 3.x?

                Be nice to have a real workstation-type laptop with a 17" screen, H-series CPU, plenty of storage slots and ample USB ports.
