    On battery power can you successfully suspend and resume your laptop? Can you try it a few times to be sure
    It's working well on my system though can vary a bit on other systems depending on e.g. the WiFi chipset and SSD model.

    If you run a very recent distro (e.g. Ubuntu 21.10 or anything rolling), you should have an excellent experience on Linux. Just make sure to install/set up `asusctl` (see previous post). I can get 8+ hours battery on my 2021 G14 when doing light tasks.
    I switch between a few distros, but don't use Debian derivatives, I utterly despise the packaging system and consider it malware.

    As others are noting in this thread, there's teething problems with support at the moment and that's fine, it's relatively new hardware, it'll settle down within a few months and I'll remove windows from my machine when it's ready.

    The newest amdgpu work to automatically detect the components breaks things for me too - so avoid drm-next for now

    It may be a 'gaming' laptop (silly concept in general) but that grunt translates well into running a development environment.
    Perfect thing to take on the road and travel with for remote work, currently using Windows with it as I'm waiting for support to mature.

    Does anyone genuinely rely upon the battery for a laptop for extended periods of time? (hours +)
    I find I use laptop batteries mostly for transitional usage (having to unplug and move etc) + having a inbuilt UPS.

    For any ASUS users here, make sure to install asusctl (https://gitlab.com/asus-linux/asusctl). Running the 2021 G14 myself and it's by far the best laptop I've ever owned. I have two keyboard shortcuts set in Gnome's settings app:

    Fn+F5: `asusctl profile -n`
    Fn+F4: `asusctl led-mode -n`

    That way the buttons work just like they should in Windows. I run my fans in Silent for normal stuff, then set it to Turbo when gaming. I also ran `asusctl -c 90` to cap my battery charging at 90%, so my battery won't wear out as quickly. Even capped at 90%, I can still get 8+ hours of battery life doing light work.

    I have this laptop, the experience is great overall but :
    Battery is really not good (I don't think the dedicated gpu is shutting down properly)
    Display port output is really unstable, the gpu just crash randomly when connected to DP
    asusctl is useful but wish it was integrated in the kernel

    Yeah. In 2019 ASUS also had VivoBook S13 S330.
