What are you looking to do? Are the apps you need available in Linux? Before taking the plunge, you'll need to line up your ducks, so to speak. Ensure that the platform is capable of running what you need to run.Has anyone replaced MacOS with Linux?
I like the new ThinkPad AMD Ryzen, good performance, easy swappable keyboard, M.2 slot. works good with linux.Don't do it. Every ThinkPad will work way better with Linux than any MBP. Aand you get better ports and better keyboard. Only reason to purchase MBP is Mac OS and the software.
Replaced my 2010 17" MBP with a 6-week old, pretty much never used ThinkPad L470 (i5, 8GB RAM (upgradeable), 1080p IPS 14", 128 GB SSD (user-replacable, supports M.2), all the ports I need, and great keyboard) for about $300 all-in (CAD$400).I'm waiting for refurbished market with prices approaching reasonable numbers. Then again, the ThinkPad is a top alternative.
