All in the title.

We are transitionning from Macs to “whatever you like” and I would like to look around for a good linux laptop equaling what we can get for the price of a MBPro (13″, 512Go disk, 16G ram for 2400€).

I bet the competition can do better (I’d certainly fancy 32Gb of ram), but I don’t have much experience in PC type laptops. I use linux a LOT at home so I’m confident I’ll be able to install it, but I don’t have the compatibility story.

What would you suggest?
Dell XPS?
Lenovo something?

THanks!
