I’m looking to buy a new laptop, but I’m not sure what to pick. My budget is 500-1000€ and I want 16 gigs of ram. I can’t buy linux brands such as System76.
My biggest concern is compatibility with linux. I want it to have as few problems with drivers as possible.
Intel CPUs come with Intel network cards, which should work on linux without problems. Intel’s drivers are also open source.
AMD CPUs are mostly better for the price, but laptops with AMDs come with an unknown network card (e.g. Broadcom or Realtek) that can have problems with drivers.
And by the way, would you recommend 14, 15 od 16 inch display? I’ll mostly use it at home, but I found a good deal with 14 inch display.
