What is the best modern laptop to run Linux on?

Ideally, I'd be able to run Linux on the M2 ARM chip, but I don't think the chip is fully supported and documentation for the chip is non-extent.

What is a good modern laptop to run Linux on? A Thinkpad?

        Yes but that will age and you cannot upgrade it.

          likewise a new better framework comes, along with new better modules of improved this and that
          the total cost of a framework always ends up being higher in the long run
          only morons fall for this kind of scam
          it would be different if it wasnt so insanely overpriced
          BUT YOU ARE moronic FOR EVEN CONSIDERING THIS AS A OPTION

            better cooling, new screen, different layout that makes all the old parts useless, new technologies like pcie5, better keyboard, etc etc
            it's only ever going to be modular against itself with existing parts, not future parts, just like self built desktops which you maybe upgrade with some new memory/disk/graphic card once before replacing them with a new computer
            the framework is a waste of money scam no matter how you look at it, even the base shell is ridiculously overpriced for what it's supposed to be

            that's maybe applicable to the framework but I don't have to upgrade my GPU/SSD just because I'm upgrading the mobo/CPU. sometimes with the memory, sure

        That's a maxed out config for the 16, Black person. Average config is 1000$ for the 13 and 2200$ for the 16 with GPU module.

    Thinkpads are unbeatable. Frameworks look good, but their Linux support isn't anywhere as good as Thinkpads (yes, they straight up lie when they say they "support" Linux)

    I haven't tried it, but if you want to take the risk, Asahi Linux is a port for Apple silicon. Idk if it supports the M2 yet, but it does supposedly have good support for the M1

        My 2015 11" MBA runs OpeneSuSe like a champion, I love it. Only issue is the battery fell from 9 hours to 5 but that is to be expected.

    everything works, sensors available, special keys do what they're supposed to, lvfs updates etc

    Modern non-mac PCs from my experience don't tend to have driver issues with GNU/Linux anymore unless you're some autist who uses a deblobbed kernel.

    anything with hardware that's not completely hostile to open source (i.e. Apple and nvidia) should be fine
