Used laptop recommandation

CinqRouge

Hi everyone! Thanks for clicking my post.

I am looking for a used laptop recommandation in the 250$-300$ CAD range.
I already found some Lenovo Thinkpad T495s which I like because of the USB C charging, the 14in form factor, capabilities and the fact that it runs a ryzen apu.

I was looking for AMD because my experience with intel HD was abysmal but that was on a 10 years old laptop at this point so, is it any good now?

My use case is just to have a second PC that runs linux and to do some light retro gaming.

I intend on running linux mint if this affect anything ( I fairly new to linux )

Before some of you suggest, I already have a steamdeck. I know the laptop maybe redundant but hey, I never said this was a rational purchase 馃槢

Thanks a bunch and have a nice day 馃檪

Their drivers still suck, but at least their Xe graphics based CPUs (I believe this was introduced with 10th gen, though it might've been 11th) are very good graphics performance.聽

Granted, I'd probably go for the T495 that you're looking at.聽
