Including laptops that respect your privacy with free (as in freedom) hardware and software.
The article recommends only Intel CPUs which I currently find weird.
Most (if not all) of the "Linux laptops" have Intel CPUs. Which is weird, since Linux has great support for free and open source drivers for AMD.
To be honest, AMD is becoming less friendly to open source (example) but I think both Intel and AMD support it at the same level. Open source Intel drivers have always worked great for me. At least they're not at the same level of nvidia or broadcom (where your best choice is either to use their blobs or nothing).
