Thanks for the answer.
I think you tried to give a wider overview of my quesite.
What I found out is that system76 is very expensive, useless if I can build the same system by myself sparing something like 2.7 times the budget (desktop version)
On purism instead, I get these kind of specs, my setup would cost 800 dollars, basically with 32 GB of RAM and 500 GB Nvme:
Processor: Intel Core i7-10510U (Comet Lake), Active (fan) Cooling, 4 Cores, 8 Threads, up to 4.9GHz
Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 620
Memory: DDR4-2400, 2 SO-DIMM slots, Max 64GB Support, 1.2V DDR4 L2133/2400MHz
Storage: 1 SATA III 6Gbps SSD/HDD (7mm), 1 M.2 SSD (SATA III/NVMe x4)
Video: 1 HDMI 2.0 4K@60Hz, 1 DisplayPort 1.2 4K@60Hz
USB Ports: 4 x USB 3.0, 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB Type C 3.1
Audio: 3.5mm AudioJack (Mic-in & Headphone-out combo)
Networking: 1 RJ45 (Gigabit Ethernet LAN), with optional WiFi Atheros ATH9k Module, 802.11n (2.4/5.0 GHz)
Bluetooth: Ar3k Bluetooth 4.0 (optional)
Power: 1 Powerbutton, DC-IN Jack
Dimension: 5.0″ x 5.0″ x 1.5″ (12.8 cm x 12.8 cm x 3.8 cm)
Weight: 2.2 lbs (1 kg)
I’m not sure why you mentioned Debian, but QubeOS runs on Fedora if I remember well.
Or you were just talking about the VMs? I can choose any VM later, if QubeOS has the template though.
As I mentioned, GPU passthrough is a security hole basically, I’m not saying that scares me much, but what’s the point if I’m aware that the setup is wrong since the day one . I can eve abandon the idea of QubeOS at that point, a simple distro is safer most probably, plus all the work behind the IDS, AV etc…
This implies that I can only consider Intel CPUs unfortunately, the AMD APU are not supported.
The issue with these companies is that I don’t live in US…
