Who wants AMD?

If Lenovo offers a full AMD CPU/GPU ThinkPad with Fedora, I will certainly buy it.

Currently using a T14s AMD on Fedora 33, so: yes.

Using ASUS G14, AMD 4900HS, Fedora 33. Also, Thinkpad T14, AMD 4750U, Fedora 33. Please count me as an AMD type of guy. Also Thinkpad Carbon X1 Gen 3 Fedora 33.

Have a good day. Norm

I would absolutely LOVE this. It has been so painful that Intel and Nvidia have been strangling the market. AMD has a much better experience, and is much more consumer-friendly (fewer anti-features). This is especially true for Fedora and other GNU/Linux users. I don't want any proprietary Nvidia drivers to be able to make full use of my machine. 

 

All I want in a laptop is:

  1. Latest generation (Ryzen 5000) AMD CPU
  2. 4K UHD display option
  3. Sleek form factor

For years Lenovo has only offered 4K UHD with Intel/Nvidia, and finally we have the upcoming P14s Gen 2 and the T14 Gen 2 to bring that to team red this year.

 

If only the extremely sleek Slim 7 Pro, AKA "2021 Yoga 14s AMD", had a 4K UHD display option, we could have all three! Still an awesome machine though and would love to see it offered with Fedora, but why isn't it even available in the US?

The G1 machines were linux certified but they failed energy cert which prevented us getting them online.

We fixed one big firmware issue (battery drain when powered off) and are going back into e-cert. I don't think we're going to get them online with the G2's on their way, but we're supporting them and still working on a number of Linux issues with both AMD and the firmware team for a better Linux experience.

 

Fingers crossed that the process is smoother this year - I was really disappointed we didn't have a smoother AMD platform linux offering, they're nice machines and AMD have been great to work with

Be careful, displaylink doesn't care about AMD users on Linux. So all thunderbird/usb-c dockingstation don't work properly with linux. I am waiting since 8 month for support! Neither Lenovo or Displaylink are interested in pushing this forward. It's really low prio.

Ah, gotcha. Any inside info on the Slim 7 Pro (AMD, Ryzen 5000) with or without Fedora in the US? I'd be especially interested in the maxed out 5900HX CPU, 1TB SSD, 2.8K resolution edition with an English (US) keyboard releasing anywhere in the world…I'd pay to import that beautiful beast!

I also noticed that the T14 Gen 2 launched, the 4K UHD option is not available despite that it was listed on its "Coming Soon" page. Do you know what the deal is with that? It appears to be available through CDW by searching for the model number "20XK0008US" but not on the Lenovo site. I truly hope the P14S G2 doesn't lose its 4K UHD option too.

Sorry to hear about bumps in the road but good to hear that they've been good to work with, crossing my fingers too!

Afraid I don't have any insight into the Slim models - sorry.

 

For the T14 AMD, the 4k panel is on my HW list for certification - but this years been a bit crazy for components, maybe it's just not currently available (I'm guessing - not based on any knowledge!).

Is 2K screen with decent brightness (400nit +) a possibility? I think 2K suits 14/15 inch screens better than 4K.
