After searching for 2 weeks, yesterday I bought an ultraportable to bring with me to work and “play” and learn linux in my 2 hours of break time - I work from 7 am to 7:30 pm, so I have 2 hours of break in the middle which I have nothing to do after eating - and model on Blender as I love designing and want to improve myself. My Lenovo Legion 7 laptop is kind of bulky and heavy to carry and the battery life isn’t that good since it is too powerful, so it is a desktop replacement for me.
Long story short, I bought a Lenovo Yoga Slim 7 Pro, AMD CPU. After searching around Reddit and Google, I found out that the included wifi card in it is “problematic” in Linux. I will receive the laptop - hopefully - tomorrow, so I can not just slap a live usb to test it. It should have - according to my search - Realtek8852be Wifi and Bluetooth card in it. I was curious if the drivers of this card was already included in the latest kernels and now work out of the box? Or what I read from the threads from 2022 is still valid and I still have to find a way to install the driver or modify/recompile kernel…etc?
I know I could buy a different more supported PC for Linux, but this was the best specs, in my budget, with the options that I wanted with less compromise and good build quality.
Thank you so much.
