    Hello you all,
    just to know if there is any compatibility on Linux versions from the Debian Branch for the Razer Blade Pro 17 [2021]. It is maybe a little bit soon to ask but it would be great to know that because I always need a dual boot for my developments at the work.

    Thanks in advance
    Stay Healthy

    with the best regards Aquiles dos Santos Crespo

    I wanted to second the question.

    I'm starting to look for a replacement of my XPS 15 and since I became spoiled with high refresh rate screens I'm considering alternatives to the newest Dell options.

    Running Linux (NixOS) on my new laptop is a hard requirement for development and keeping consistency with my work worstation and laptop setups.

  3. Hey, was waiting to get some feedback before dual booting my blade 17, especially waiting for feedback on the driver support situation for the RTX 3080 inside it. Thanks a lot !

  4. I have successfully dual booted a Blade Pro 17" (2019) with Pop OS. It's NVidia support is simply superb, it just worked after I installed it. Even got some Tensorflow experiments going.

    Honestly, the hardest part was partitioning (EFI + all its weirdness) & fixing the partition so it would show up and default boot correctly after a restart without human input.
