Looking for top Linux support, along with KDE Plasma out of the box and you need a new laptop? Perhaps have a think on the new fourth generation Kubuntu Focus M2.

This just announced portable comes with: an Intel 12th gen i7-12700Hz (with IRIS Xe - 96 EUs), a 2560x1440 165Hz QHD DCI-P3 display and a 80 Wh Embedded Polymer Battery Pack as standard and can be configured with some pretty powerful other internals. Base model includes:

  • 16GB 3200Mhz DDR4 RAM, configurable up to 64GB.
  • 500GB Samsung NVMe, configurable up to 2TB (you can add a second too).

As for connectivity it has Intel Wi-Fi 6E AX211 + Bluetooth M.2 2230 Card, a Realtek Gigabit RJ-45 Ethernet, Bluetooth 5.2 and plenty of places to plug things in like Thunderbolt 4 at 40 Gbps + USB-C (Does NOT support USB charging), HDMI Output Port (with HDCP), Mini DisplayPort 1.4, DisplayPort 1.4 over USB-C 3.2 Gen 2, USB-A 3.2 Gen 1 Ports (1 x Powered USB, AC/DC), 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Headphone / Microphone), 2-in-1 Audio Jack (Microphone / S/PDIF Optical output), SSD/MMC Card Reader and a Kensington Lock.

This new model begins shipping 09 May 2022. Pricing starts at $1,895. Looks like it only ships to US/Canada.

USB-C charging is a must for me. I've got a ThinkPad with USB-C charging and it's so nice to share a charger between my laptop and phone. Only works one way(phone charger is too weak), but it's a blessing for travel and house organization

It's tough since USB-PD only goes up to 100W currently but that should change soon with the new spec.

I understand some machines consume too much power to have USB-C charging as their only option for now. But even when it's a additional charger it's useful - my gaming laptop has a 150W barrel charging port, but can game for about 3 hours(1h on battery alone) when topped up by a 65W USB-C charger, so I can play in bed without moving the main charger.
