Thanks SecCon, seems that model is stable, unfortunately not easy to buy a "new" one, as Lenove replace that model with Lenovo T490s recently.

Warning: Lenovo Model T490s on sale actually on lenovo site suffers from overheating issues on Linux

It will be great to find an actual "on sale" device on official manufacturers that support CentOS 8 without any issues.

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I have read Centos WIKI tutorials for compatible laptops but all of them are very outdated (4-6 years old laptops).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.

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

It is really extremely complicate to find a compatible laptop, as manufacturers are launching ubuntu on them nowadays.
Even Redhat or fedora adds more drivers and do not move them to centos.

Any help is appreciated.

Regards,
Javier
Lenovo as I recall bought IBM's computer division, and I think IBM called their laptops, "Think Pads" which then got the Lenovo branding. The second brand that I have some passing acquaintance with in passing is ASUS, to the extent I like their motherboards, but not one of their laptops. While it may be impossible to find, see if you can find a laptop that comes with an AMD Ryzen CPU, rather than Intel.

Have you tried TUXEDO laptops? I'm not affiliated with them but I hope to buy one of their Ryzen laptops soon: https://www.tuxedocomputers.com/index.php
