currently I’m using a HP Notebook 14-dk355 (AMD Ryzen 3500U) and so far it runs fine with Fedora except for wifi (Realtek 8821CE). There is an unofficial DKMS module implementation which works so far, but with a few bugs and an uncertain future in terms of support. There is also no sign on the horizon if the 8821CE will make it into the mainline kernel.
So since I learned that Lenovo has a very good standing amongst Linux and Fedora users (Lenovo even plans to release some ThinkPads with Fedora pre-installed!) I was wondering which AMD-based notebooks from them are working out of the box with the Linux kernel so that no manual fiddling is required.
I don’t want to spent a fortune like the business/high-end Lenovo’s cost, but their AMD-based products seem quite affordable. I’ve already discovered that some of the AMD-based ones have an Intel WiFi chip and therefore should be safe to use without fiddling, right?
What do you think about those two models in particular? Are they well suited for Linux and work out of the box with the provided hardware?
At least in terms of WiFi both are supported by the current stable kernel, right?
ThinkPad E495: Realtek Wireless-AC 8822BE
IdeaPad 5: Intel Wireless-AX 22260 (2x2) WLAN
Many thanks in advance!
