They always sacrifice the speakers. I've had a gig as a coder before and I've never needed the number pad like ever. It's precious space wasted where good top speakers could go.

I have a System76 laptop. Its a nice laptop but I didn't like the Gnome desktop.I did see on the internet instructions for changing it and I switched to Mate and now its great. I think System76 should drop their annoying gnome desktop and send out their computers with Mate. But after spending a grand on a computer I should not have had to fiddle with it like that!

I'd rather see Linux laptops become the new thing instead of Google-drenched Chromebooks! Always good to see Anthony reviewing Linux machines. I bailed from Windows over to Linux Mint back when Microsloft decided they didn't want to support Windows 7 anymore (and stuffed Windows 10 full of spyware)...haven't looked back since! There's only a small handful of programs that I can't run ("Trackerbox" author sales tracking software). Love my Mint desktop!

Because that laptop will have Windows firmware installed...... then you'll start bitching like a baby when something doesn't work or you have crap battery life and blame Linux for your mistake.

gedeyom gıyamete hamıneya 8 天 前
dude you need to install the drivers first.
gilkesisking 5 天 前
@gedeyom gıyamete hamıneya Bio's firmware are not "drivers". "AMD GPU drivers and all other drivers are built directly in the Linux Kernel, plug and play." "Apart from NVIDIA". That seems pretty simple to me. I'm sorry if you can't follow that I was only trying to help. If you're actually looking for an argument you best go elsewhere.
gedeyom gıyamete hamıneya
gedeyom gıyamete hamıneya 5 天 前
@gilkesisking read what you wrote please, does any of your words means that they include the drivers ? no. so you have to install them.
gilkesisking 5 天 前
@gedeyom gıyamete hamıneya fwupd looks at your hardware and informs you IF there are firmware updates available for your device. If you didn't get a notification then there are no updates available. Supported hardware is listed on the website. No guarantee of availability on machines designed for Windows or Apple.

@gilkesisking imm no. i am wring from ubuntu, i would have known if they included firmware.
gilkesisking 5 天 前
@gedeyom gıyamete hamıneya Firmware is provided by the manufacturer. Check the "fwupd - Linux Vendor Firmware Service" website. fwupd is included as a package in distro's that ship on Linux hardware... PopOS, Ubuntu and Fedora. It makes no sense to include firmware updates in an OS and regardless of OS you have to install them manually. Linux makes it incredibly easy with a simple single click. AMD and Intel cpu microcode and their updates are shipped as default with Linux distros or can be installed manually on something like Arch. AMD GPU drivers and all other drivers are built directly in the Linux Kernel, plug and play. If your hardware isn't automatically detected and working then you simply have unsupported ( Windows or Apple ) hardware.... sell it. NVIDIA drivers are a simple install directly from a distro's GUI software centre, driver manager or CLI. ( never install from the website ). PopOS has NVIDIA drivers built into their NVIDIA ISO, install the system, update and go. CUPS, Common UNIX Printing Service is included as a default package on just about every Linux distro. Again plug and play, your printer is supported or isn't. Apart from NVIDIA Linux is plug and play ( on supported hardware ).

I love mine. Got it 1 month ago. I am not a fan of Gnome3 or KDE so I installed Linux Mint Cinnamon then added the PopOS kernel and firmware from their repo. Mine is a i7 16GB Dual 500GB NVME hoked up to a OWC Thunderbolt 3 13 port dock and a dell 32" curved display. The only thing I ran into was the charging over the Thunderbolt 4 port was a little picky. Linux admin and programmer for 21 years so pretty at home. Have a Thelio as my desktop at work.

If they could just get the price down to an even $1000, it would be worth it to me. at $1500-ish though, I'd rather spend a little bit more and get a more powerful laptop with windows and a discrete graphics card, and just dual boot linux.

Linux is not just the future, it's been "the future" since the 70-80s (GNU and Unix), and will always be the future. Fast forward 3 decades later, we have Linux running the internet (majority of the servers are running a Linux distro), has THE biggest overall OS market share (Android), is the reason why we even have a shot at privacy/anonymity/liberty, and even resurrects old systems that would be considered useless if running Windows or Mac OS. I mean the list goes on and on, SpaceX uses Linux in their 2 main rockets. Tesla uses Linux for their OS in the cars. Now that more users are getting into Linux, it starts to make sense to port over gaming capability.

NO, Linux sucks in every way. Not everyone wants to learn to code just to do the most simple tasks. They just want to turn it on and go like in Windows. And Linux does not have one application to make it worth having. Just a bunch of marginal programs with a huge learning curve. The only reason Linux is still around is for web servers, that's it! I warn you, do not get conned into buying a Linux computer, you will regret it!

@Diego Estrada I am a previous Windows user, I have probably used windows for over 8 years and Linux for about 2. I exclusively use Linux as it's my preferred operating system. The vast majority of Linux users don't use it to look cool, it straight up better for pretty much everything I use a computer for.

Linux can read Windows NTFS drives providing Windows isn't in hibernation mode or the dive is encrypted. Windows *cannot* read Linux ext4, zfs or Btrfs etc. A portable USB drive formatted to NTFS can be used between the two systems, however NTFS does not respect Linux permissions ( so forget using it as a games drive but mp3 mp4 mkv jpg png etc etc will work just fine )
