New Laptop compatible with Centos 7.8

Hello,

I have read Centos WIKI tutorials for compatible laptops but all of them are very outdated (4-6 years old laptops).
I need a recommendation from the forum for a 100% compatible laptop of a well-known manufacturer like ASUS, Dell, Lenovo or Acer.
I ask for verion 7.8 as they are usually cheaper or mid-price, as centos8 notebooks are rare or extremely expensive.

Mainly that the wifi driver is stable and works, and touchpad/trackpad also works by default.

It is really extremely complicate to find a compatible laptop, as manufacturers are launching ubuntu on them nowadays.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
Javier

Javier,

This may be too old for you now, but thought I'd drop something as an FYI. I just bought a HP 14-ce3xxx with a 10th gen Intel. I shrunk the Windows install to do a dual boot into CentOS7 (v2009). Everything worked on it (touchpad, ethernet, etc) except the wifi card. But you can follow these steps here (https://tutorialforlinux.com/2019/11/11 ... gnu-linux/) and it should work for you.

Be nice to hear if you got it going.
