    Laptop shopping is still such a pain. Is there a phoronix thread comparing the latest AMD HP, Dell, Lenovo, etc laptops? Especially interested in those with 2 nvmes.

    Is build quality of p14s any good?

    I thought that p14s is like t14s (magnesium body) so premium build quality but it seems that it is made of plastic all the way.

    I would pick soldered ram at 7500 speed over non soldered at 5600 which is where sodimm's are currently at. You're not going to be able to upgrade sodimm ddr5 at 7500 for a long time, maybe never.

    I wouldn't pick soldered at 6400. No point going for soldered without going all in on the benefit of doing so.

    There is a huge problem with Zen3 under certai ncircumstances, more visible on Linux: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/drm/amd/-/issues/2220
    I have this on T14s Gen3, can you pay attention or do these tests (that do lots of VAAPI for example) to see stability of system? Problem seems to be on HW level.

    Even if it is your subjective opinion, I would like to know how this laptop is both on noise and timbre when fully loaded. I have another P series and it was both noisy and had a high pitch squeal while compiling. That is until I opened it up and removed this mesh that they put over the vent holes. But I shouldn't be having to mod their laptops in order to get decent acoustics.

    The specs for the price are incredible, though I would not buy an AMD model, I would look for one with Intel CPU and Nvidia GPU or Arc GPU.

    Michael, when you get this system and start testing it consider adding a new test to your standard suite:



    What you could do is fire up 2 or 3 instances of PTS ( I assume it's reentrant) and you could also take a page out of MSU's playbook and make certain results available only to Premium subscribers.



    These people have been testing video codecs for years and the make different versions of their reports available, The free report only includes some of the test results, while the paid versions have much more.

    Maybe you can do the same thing, have the regular review and then have additional tests, such as a multitasking test, for your Premium members.

    It's an "s" or slim model so they always come like that. The regular P models usually don't have that issue. As for other non-s series they usually have one soldered and one socketed. Unless you find some golden models like the E495 which hilariously supports up to 64GiB in two sockets while being an entry level model.
    it may be marked 's' but it's not slim at all. Soldered ram is justified on very slim ultrabooks, otherwise it's nonsense. About speed, on desktop we don't have soldered ram but I don't feel they are slow...

    Yep that 2.8k screen will chew the battery also how come the screen is only 60hz when the Yoga 2.8k has 90hz?
