I am currently using a desktop computer.
Ryzen 7 2700x
Everything works fine with this configuration.
I want to switch to a laptop to run qubes, but I am confused by the choice of supported hardware. I learned HCL and out of all the stable support I like the Thinkpad p51. I have already found a suitable one in the local market. What worries me the most is whether 4 cores are enough to work with cubes? I somehow managed to use an old lenovo g505s laptop with cubes, but for me it was hell (CPU load).
On average, I usually have about 10-13 appvm running.
With 8 cores on the desktop, nothing bothered me, but with 4 cores on the laptop, I’m not sure.
Will I notice a big difference in performance? I would be glad to receive any feedback.
