While not truly a linux laptop vendor, now that most all the Lenovo Thinkpads are actually certified as linux-compatible that would be my choice.

I like the dell latitude 5420,5424, or 7424 for the same reasons. I am pretty hard on laptop gear when riding motorcycle.

My source of second-hand Thinkpad X220 dried up last year. :-( That was the last model with semi-acceptable keyboard layout. I can't vote for the current Lenovo, and IBM is not in the list.

But, why is frame.work not in the list? They have a promising attitude towards upgrades and repairs.

Huh, indeed.
I heard good things about them, and good reviews.

I learned about https://frame.work/products/laptop-d...iguration/edit
here at LQ, thanks to somebody.

They don't install Linux for you, so it's probably not ideal for this poll but:
Quote:
Operating System
Windows 10 Home (Download)
+$139
Windows 10 Pro (Download)
+$199

None (bring your own)
sweet!

Hope they grow to more than three CPU choices.

Right here Bro. ChromeOS don't support fat file systems anymore So being a ChromeOS user also.
Getting kind of old that android and ChromeOS is Linux on these eyes.
This netbook does what I want good.
My ChromeOS netbook does what I want good.
Does not mean that I accept that Chromebooks are Linux till someone like me shoe horns gnu/linux for real on one.

I tell ya one thing. These netbooks are fast. It is why I bought a defunct EOL chromeos Samsung desktop chromebox. Gonna shoe horn something on it eventually. They are getting about as cheap as usb adapter lately.
