    this is my current status:
    Ubuntu 19.04
    Intel AX200 - working with intel driver and kernel 5.1
    RTX 2070 Max-Q - working with nvidia-430 driver(xorg only, no wayland)
    multiple monitors - wayland only, xorg has issues(see my post)
    I'm having some issues with gnome crashing on wake from sleep on battery
    touchpad(no smooth scrolling)

    post your system's current status. I think we would all like to get our systems stable in Ubuntu

    Wake from sleep issue fix (up to 19.04)
    run sudo grub-update after this change

    hey there ... i got a blade 15 advanced (mid 2019) and Kubuntu 18.04 had (still has) some issues ... I installed the backport drivers from Intel for Wifi and upgraded the kernel to 5.1 and even 5.2.x ... BUT it will not even detect my rtx 2070 max-q ... was that working -at least the standard driver (not nvidia)- on 19.04? Via additional driver repsectively the KDE equivalent there is just nothing ...

    Hi guy, I am looking forward to buy a new Blade but the situation you depict is grim.

    Something is not clear to me:

    The Display is connected directly to the NVIDIA GPU or to the Intel GPU?

    Do you need bumblebee?

    Do you have any temperature issues?

    My experience so far with mid 2019 9th gen intel, 2070 max-q:

    Manjaro Gnome dual boot with Windows:
    - Intel AX200 Wifi drivers are not available out of the box, only on specific kernels, bump the kernel version
    - Used bumblebee to run CUDA apps (deep/machine/whatever learning stuff); while running default in Intel
    - Suspend was working nicely
    - Battery life was quite good
    - Could not get the external display to work :frown_:

    Ubuntu 19.04 dual boot with Windows:
    - Intel AX200 Wifi drivers are not available out of the box, only on specific kernels (had to bump the kernel, bumped kernel is unsigned - so bye bye dual boot Windows with Bitlocker enabled :frown_: )
    - Used Nvidia optimus to switch graphics to run CUDA apps, but less convenient than bumblebee for my workflow
    - Could not get the external display to work, black screen output through HDMI when on Nvidia, no signal on Intel :frown_:

    TLDR. So far still cannot get the setup that I'd like to have on this hardware.

    EDIT: Got the display working by following this AskUbuntu answer. :wink_:

    I recently updated to Ubuntu 19.10 and mostly fine with one exception, I'm having issues with waking from sleep takes longer than I would expect. I haven't nailed down exactly what causes it, but it does eventually recover and resume.

    Has anyone updated to Ubuntu 19.10 yet? or linux kernel 5.3?

    1) not sure, as it's a laptop
    2) have not used it, works fine without it
    3) haven't noticed any issues with temperature
