    I would like a laptop with the following specifications:

    4K (or similar resolution) screen.
    AMD or Intel graphics.
    15 inch screen.
    Linux friendly.

    Anyone have something to recommend?

    Damn, I thought it was gonna be between AMD and Intel CPUs.

    I'd go for AMD graphics if you're going integrated, unless something has changed radically in the last 6 months on Intel's integrated end. (I haven't been keeping up, sorry)

    G'luck, I'll keep my eyes open and post up any I see that look decent. HDD or SSD size requirements? And what kind of battery life are you needing?

    Oh, biggest question...what's the budget?

    It seems like a Lenovo ThinkPad T15 Gen 1 can be configured with a 4k screen. Seems to have the features I want but is pretty ugly...
