Last week for black friday sales, might grab a new laptop. Anyone else looking to buy?
Leaning towards the Dell XPS 15, it’s latest 13th gen Intel, saw some posts here people have had luck running Qubes on it.
gpu: Looks like they have two gpu options, the nvidia geforce rtx 4060 vs the intel iris xe graphics. Will probably be years before drivers are available, but I imagine generic drivers should work.
wireless: The wireless adapters probably not detected in qubes 4.2-rc4, but I don’t use wireless, so that can wait.
ethernet: Hopefully the ethernet port will be detected, debian 12 bookworm now includes hardware drivers in base install, so that’s good.
? if I do a fresh qubes 4.2-rc4 install, chose debian-12-xfce only (no fedora) does that mean dom0 will use debian? I checked /etc/os-release, says Qubes OS not debian, so not sure.
Anyways, would love to hear feedback on this, and other new laptops worth considering. I’m kind of done with the really old gen 3 laptops, sure they work, but just too slow. I want something with some pep to it.
