    I do not get it why would you buy this? It probably has PSU that is half of its weight and laptops like this are not light at all. Carrying this is not an option. Battery will run out faster then windows finishes updating For such price and immobility one could easily build more powerful PC.

    I myself am waiting for Snapdragon X elite. I decided to switch to ARM on my work laptop, but i do not want crappy macbook that can't run linux properly.

    I like the direction the issue is the terrible 16:9 aspect ratio. Never going back go 16:9 with having 16:10. Framework 16 would be my go-to over this TUXEDO release.

    I have seen posts about high idle power draw from the 7xxx series desktop GPUs too, so maybe related. Here's a good reference for the battery life of the previous gen laptop I mentioned (and that I'm typing this on now).

    This was already a non-issue with previous generation parts. The Asus ROG Strix G15 AMD Advantage edition with a Zen 3 Ryzen 9 5980HX and Radeon RX 6800M (same GPU as a desktop 6700 XT) has 8+ hour battery life for basic usage. They power gated the dGPU extremely well. When it launched its battery life was almost absurd for a gaming laptop with top SKU components.

    I have a current Tuxedo Pulse 14 gen 1, I do wish they'd have US-ANSI keyboard layout, but they only do ISO layout. Battery life is also pretty disappointing, not sure if it's the battery size, or lack of mainboard/hardware optimizations/drivers.

    My FW16 batch is almost up, so I'm excited for that!

I can notice if I'm trying to pixel peep, but that occurs with 4K and higher resolutions at larger screen sizes, too. Those resolutions and pixel densities are where I'm able to turn off my inner pixel peeper and enjoy everything.
    On the deskop, I find 24" at 4k about perfect (184 PPI), and three of those fit on a desk well. At 27" (163 PPI) I'd see a little pixelation, but it wouldn't be annoying. I recently bought the 57" dual 4k screen for immersion, and its meagre 140 PPI is very pixelated, but it's also my first non-CRT screen with a refresh over 60 Hz. But it's way better than the days of 1440p 27" with an awful 109 PPI.

    FWIW, I see what you're trying to accomplish with your described workflow, how that varies with my desktop's workflow (and workspace needs/differences due to using ultrawide), and how your setup could exacerbate pixel peeping at 1440p. It sucks that nobody makes a 17"+ 4K AMD laptop with a 7800 to 7900 XT GPU.

    At least this is a good midrange entry model that won't ever suck. If it was 4K with the GPU it has there would be times that it'd suck. I say that from the glass half full, gaming and consumer position that if it doesn't suck and sells well enough that perhaps they'll release a higher end AMD model.

Then I want a 4k screen so I can have 4 1080p-ish windows on screen, as that's a major productivity booster for me. It's a night-and-day different compared to 1440p. When it comes to pixel density, I can easily tell the difference between 1440p and 4k on a 17" laptop: the 1440p display will be pixelated and the 4k will not. My current work laptop is an all-Intel Dell 7750 with a 4k 17" screen and it's perfect at 100% scaling.

    It would be nice to have an all-AMD system to not have to deal with Nvidia drivers. I'd like to be able to do a little bit of gaming on top of having a good system for productivity as I travel around. I wouldn't mind playing games at a lower FPS and resolution, as gaming is a secondary concern for me after productivity. The onboard graphics in the i9-10885H my work system has are too weak.

    This is frustrating for me also. The 7900M was announced and seems to be non-existent. It has also taken a long time for them to fill in the huge gap between the 7900M and 7600M. I do want a dGPU. But if I'm going to buy something with a dGPU, I want something beefier like a 78xx class.

    165hz VRR 1440p is a really good choice with that grade of GPU and CPU. I have a 144hz Ultrawide 1440p monitor and games like Elden Ring get 90ish FPS with maxed out settings with my 6700 XT+7800X3D (Flawless Widescreen and that anti-cheat toggle mod FTW). IMHO, and especially so with most modern desktops that scale well, there isn't that much of a visual fidelity improvement from 1440 to 2160 to justify the additional power usage and lowered graphical performance that occurs with the jump to 2160 on mid-range and lesser GPUs.
