I think that major computer makers are overlooking a substantial audience. A lot of us older Linux users are in our primary money-making years - and we like good hardware. The few companies that target any hardware at Linux users -might- certify or provide drivers for a lesser/entry level model of one or two products. If Lenovo had proper Linux support, I would purchase a top of the line Thinkpad X1 Yoga Gen 4. Proper support in my vision would be drivers for the fingerprint reader, WWAN module, 4K screen on a model with 16GB RAM (max on the soldered-on platform apparenlty) and I would swap the NVME drive out to 2TB on day one. As they clearly decided that Linux users would never want the best hardware, they put in components into this that may never see proper Linux support. The only hope for it is that it is mechanically/electronically similar to the X1 Carbon Gen 7 - and a few people are experimenting with that one - and encountering issues - that may or may not be solvable without Lenovo's or, in the case of the WWAN and fingerprint reader, the upstream component supplier - apparently parts chosen without bothering to find out if they could or would be supported under Linux. Rant aside, I'm interested in and can afford top of the line hardware, but have zero interest in having to use Windows or MacOS as my OS. Surely I can't be alone in that. In the slim margin world of hardware sales, adding a half percent to the total sales counts is a big deal. That the manufacturers give so little thought to ensuring that the components support this segment seems like they're overlooking a profit opportunity.
