  1. I am getting a thinkpad E495. I am really excited for this little machine I bought.


    Do you guys have any tips when it comes to thinkpad/ryzen laptop?


    I heard RyzenAdj can be used to change the power limit of the chip. 





    see the comment section of this article:  https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-E495-Laptop-Review-Inexpensive-office-device-with-a-lot-of-power-but-without-keyboard-illumination.434877.0.html



     also when it comes to memory handicapping what should I do about it?? get another stick?? Or change all the memory chips all together. (I assume duo channel is good for AMD ryzen chips)

      Ah, nice! :) Might be worth checking which games you play as most now run in Linux quite smoothly with Proton in Steam and Lutris.

      As for the ram, first find out if it's a single stick or already dual-channel. If single, then yes, it's best to match what's there. If it's already dual channel, then no upgrade needed (unless you want/need more ram).

      @Kaloob Yeah, but I don't like Windows.
