I am looking for a desktop computer (or motherboard) that works well with Qubes. Does anyone have good recommendations? I did experiment with a Dell Optiplex 7040. It almost worked except that Qubes performed erratically upon waking up from suspend (ex: no ethernet). I did browse through the hardware compatibility list on the Qubes website.
Recent generation AMD processors like Ryzen 5 with MSI motherboards with good RAM can run Qubes 4.1. For GPU, you can buy any cheap one from AMD. Buy faster drives. Get a usb with write protect switch to create installation media. suspend may be broken although…
Issues with suspend seems to be a common issue. I experienced no such problems with a Librem 15 but other computers I’ve had problems with that.
