I've already given up on Lenovo. Dell report:
XPS 12 2016 (tablet) - very nice except Linux KP's on suspension. Love the keyboard. Have heard that the keyboard+cover is much less pleasant to type on. Keeping it in hopes that Linux eventually works, but it's also a warning: not everything Dell works well with Linux.
XPS 13 2016 (laptop formfactor, not 2017 2-in-1 design) - perfect. Hardware's near-identical with the 'developer' edition that comes with Linux, so I just picked it up at a microcenter. I love this thing. The 2017 model is probably OK, but I just hate the '360' 2-in-1 design: laptopmode isn't compromised much, but tabletmode is a joke. Why even bother? Are these popular purely due to the movie-watching options?
And these are "high end consumer soykaf" models. There are also business laptops with clitmice, that are easy to operate on, that come with western support. Latitude laptops.
Dell also have very nice BIOS setups, BIOS updates, one-time boot menus, etc. It's just pleasant.
I remember Dell as that company with the annoying fuarrrking "dude" ads and never used them before getting the XPS 12, but they're a breath of fresh air now after a decade of buying lots of brands of laptops and never being quite happy with them - especially the last decade of Linux compatibility seeming to get worse and worse, and BSD not working at all.
