Star Labs was formed back in 2016 by "a bunch of geeks" and they offer something not many vendors do with Linux support out of the box, open source firmware support that allows you to switch between American Megatrends (AMI) Aptio V or coreboot any time you feel like it. They even have their own open source coreboot configuration UI, that allows you to tweak all sorts of hardware settings.

We're now three weeks away from the official release date of the Steam Deck handheld Linux gaming machine. The good news is that Verified titles have been growing nicely!
Still nothing compared to the overall Steam library but we do fully expect a lot more titles to appear. This is just the beginning and not being verified doesn't mean a game won't work.
https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/02/over-120-titles-are-now-steam-deck-verified/This is only those titles fully Verified too as there's also now 111 titles that are marked as Playable like Factorio, RimWorld, The Witcher 3, Deep Rock Galactic, Valheim, Morrowind, Path of Exile and the list goes on. Some of the reasons being text too small, manual graphics settings adjustments needed, launchers, spotty gamepad support and so on. We expect many of the Playable titles to improve or even get Verified before the Steam Deck launches.
At $1099 USD, the HP Dev One is powered by an AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U 8-core/16-thread processor with Radeon Vega graphics, 16GB of DDR4-3200 memory, a 1TB NVMe M.2 2280 SSD, and a 1080p 14-inch 1000 nit display. The specs are great and the Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U SoC is a wonderful choice for this mid-range to higher-end developer-minded laptop.
The laptop measures in at 32.3 x 21.4 x 1.91 cm and weighs 3.24 lbs / 1.47 kg. The HP Dev One features an HP Long Life 3-cell, 53 Wh Li-ion battery.
here are benchmarks of the HP Dev One while trying out Arch Linux, Ubuntu 22.04, Fedora Workstation 36, openSUSE Tumbleweed, and Clear Linux in addition to the default Pop!_OS 22.04 installation.
https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=hp-devone-linux&num=1Lastly is a look at the geometric mean of all the benchmarks carried out where they successfully completed on all operating systems under test. Obviously just the raw performance is being looked at and not the power/thermal results here. Pop!_OS 22.04 was right inline with the performance provided by openSUSE, Fedora Workstation, and Ubuntu 22.04 on the AMD Ryzen 7 PRO 5850U powered HP Dev One. Arch Linux in its default configuration from Archinstall was noticeably slower than the rest. Intel's Clear Linux meanwhile offered around 13% better performance overall than the other Linux distributions thanks to its aggressive default performance tuning, extra patches, and other optimizations.
