So looks like I'm getting a new laptop. I have never bought a non-Apple computer. But AFAICT the new M1's don't take to Linux very easily, so I'll be getting a non-Apple.
Please send me your loves and hates. I'd like to get something that'll last 8 years, as my MacBook has.
Perhaps notable: I'm not a gamer.
Crappy update: Dell XPS 15, Arch Linux. First crack I was left without sound and video but I‘d made a mistake in the installation. So I’m probably gonna start over (probably not until 2022/09/10).
I might try installing Mint in a VM and see if I can get sound and video working in there, although that seems fanciful.

Joyful update: During a severe bout of insomnia, I reinstalled the OS & have audio out of the box.
