Tuxedo Stellaris: A Powerful Linux Laptop

I'm definitely biased towards all-AMD Linux laptops these days. And this past summer I bought an ASUS ROG Strix G15 Advantage Edition.I really liked that laptop's CPU and dGPU. In Linux, I always have an easier time with GPU drivers/behavior with AMD vs. nVidia.Unfortunately, with that particul...

Genuinely ridiculous how Lenovo made the Legion 5 possibly the best gaming laptop of the year, but completely botched their top tier Legion 7i

This is the budget gaming rig to beat.

Heck, dollar for dollar this is the GAMING rig to beat. Item of Note: There IS a 2.5” hard drive caddy/cable with this model.

AMD vs. Intel CPU Market Share

Legion 5 would be your best bet. It has the best CPU out of the ones listed edging out the 10870h and is equal in terms of GPU with the Predator.

Very good value

This is a solid gaming laptop, especially for the price. Upgradeable as well. The graphic card is pretty decent as well albeit not the latest and greatest. Great purchase
