    I dont even game on linux, and I still like it. I would prefer 4K, but I would not prefer 1440p.

    in fact, I think resolution is *more* advantageous in games, especially outside of mega fidelity AAAs (which would push these smaller laptop GPUs too hard).
    Unless games do jack with the resolution. For example, the entire Kingdom Rush series supports 1440p and even 4K, but in the gameplay there's just as much useable screen real estate as on 1080p, because they only scale up the graphics, but not the maps. :/

These are nice laptops that are good for gaming, because they are not thin so they don't get throttled. However, I can't see how someone would pay double of what this laptop is really worth just to have a "Tuxedo" or "System76" sticker on top of it (unless you are a freetard of course).
    Huh? Tuxedo rebrands Tongfang laptops, not Clevo laptops.

    Does it come with working suspend/resume ? Previous experience with the Ryze 5XXX series hasn't been good on Ubuntu
    You mean on laptop or desktop? 'Cause suspend/resume is working fine on my Ryzen 5900HX, but it's a desktop.

    Yes, I'm sure Intel is bribing OEMs using AMD CPUs to pair them with Nvidia dGPUs instead of AMD dGPUs . Your comment makes zero sense given the context of what you quoted. We were talking about the dearth of all AMD laptops with discrete GPUs. There are tons of offerings with Zen + Nvidia.

    If you have to handle a lot of scientifical plots and you have to compare them its quite handy that this display renders them lasersharp.
    I think 1080p is the bare minimum on a modern 15" and 4k the optimum. If price is not a huge concern.

    I dont like Apple Products but the "retina" marketing is somehow right. A ergonomical designed display, if technical possible, should slightly outperform the retina resolution (considering all the distance focusing, blur of eyelense ..bla anatomy).
    I went from having an Alienware 15 with a [email protected] screen to the ASUS AMD Advantage with [email protected] and I'm not missing the extra pixels - thankfully

    Mostly because there's still to many weird graphical issues with Plasma under X11 with HiDPI, it's even worse if you switch between Wayland and X11 - which you think there would be tests to make sure it displays *exactly* the same

I forget the precise version) and random reboot issues because the power management of the 6800M was a complete mess. The former is fixed in newer kernels and the latter has been fixed by both a BIOS and VBIOS update.

    I love the fact that I now have a laptop without a webcam. I've had precisely one person complain about it - and they shut up quickly when I suggested that if they didn't like it they could buy me a USB webcam - and a few people told me privately that they're going to try to find laptops without webcams themselves. Most integrated webcams are low-resolution junk and often perfectly positioned to provide as poor a view of the speaker as possible (whoever thought a webcam pointing straight up your nose was a good idea needs demoting to hot-beverage-making duties) so there we are. That's obviously not an option for everyone. However, you want to specify what I use, you need to pay for it, not expect me to do so.
    I'm running 5.17-rc2 with a few backported patches from what will be 5.18 to get the wifi working on a warm reboot

    Suspend issues now gone, things work great, especially for gaming

    I'm guessing the patches that sort stuff will be backported to the stable trees, so hopefully not too much longer for you to wait

    Edit:

    These are the patches (01-06) I'm running on top of 5.17-rc2 https://github.com/Fireburn/KernelStuff

    This 100%. I just bought a 15" Dell Precision 7560. Total price was north of $3600 with the Xeon and 32 GB ECC memory and a few TB's of NVMe. I opted for the 1080p panel even though higher res ones were available. Higher res makes no sense on a screen that small. To utilize the rez you'd have to sit hunched over like an ape with your face 6 inches from the display. No thanks. I'll take normal res, better performance, and longer battery life of 1080p.

    I'll take 4k on a 27" desktop display all day, but for a 15" laptop screen, 1080p is perfection.

    The AMD Advantage effort has been a huge pile of fail so far. As you said, exactly 1 laptop on the planet with the 6800m, and only half a dozen systems total. The Strix G15 is the only interesting one, but the morons at Asus pulled the same bonehead "no webcam during a pandemic with work/learn from home herp derp" crap as on the G14. I hope they make an updated all AMD G15 this year and add a webcam.
