Maybe if you could get the build # and look it up on dell to get all the specs. On the xps it's under the tag on the back. I'd check that if possible.

Well ... this is interesting ... https://frame.work/ Anyone considered the specs?

Also, the Lenovo IdeaPad S145 15.6" is said to be highly compatible to Linux.

As well as this 17" HP https://www.amazon.com/HP-i7-4810MQ-Win10P64-Certified-Refurbished/dp/B07JH536X1

Lenovo Carbon X1 14" - has been recommended as very Linux-friendly.
