As those Laptop are thin&Lite category so i have read some articles AMD IGPU is better as compared to INTEL IGPU and that's why i was preferring AMD but don't how well it goes with Linux. On the other hand intel model support 90hz display amd 60hz.
Also many ppl are saying Linux is best for old hardware doesn't goes well with latest Hardwear is that true?
Depends, for mobile devices it really comes down to Intel's more mature driver support. For modern and cutting-edge technology Linux works fine some areas it's a little behind such as 4 and 8K displays. Nvidia drivers are often hit or miss.
Linux tends to be good for older hardware because it's not as resource hungry as other operating systems. And you can swap out to a different desktop environment to suit your needs such as XFCE.
Linux is good for old hardware, allowing old hardware to remain in use longer and sparing it as e-waste.
Linux works well on newer hardware as well.
With the Latest Hardware- remember that most hardware is designed and built with Windows in mind, which Microsoft holds about 90% of the OS market.
With the very latest hardware, you are better served on a Rolling Distro if using Linux. It takes time for drivers to port to Linux, though.
Even so, most newer hardware runs fine on Linux.
I agree with @seanhinkley that above 4k display needs better support in Linux.
As demand for it and common usage grow, I am sure that the support will grow, as well.
Almost everything is compatible with Intel and any new Intel release. Your big concern, in my view, is chipset and graphics. This is where a person really needs to self-serve and do some research. Also, a person needs to fully understand their needs versus the laptop being considered. Gaming or office work/internet only?
Here is an example, read down the thread and a user is having issues with Zenbook 13 and Zorin 16.1. This is why I say, you really need to self-serve. My view is the chipset is a major issue for any OS to be compliant with, regardless of Intel or AMD. Graphics cards are next, in my view. Add to that mix is the BIOS as it needs to do board functions as well.
Are you dual booting or Linux only? You will need to do some research and see what you need to do for a dual boot and what to do if the dual boot fails. What will you need to change in the BIOS.
I am not saying the Zenbook 14 OLED will not work on Zorin or any Linux, and you will see that Zenbook seems to be problematic with some Linux distros. Often issues get patched fairly quickly, but, you should do a simple guggle search on "asus zenbook and linux" and see what results you get.
Going cutting edge can be an annoyance but is the issue that it is cutting edge or how the manufacture puts together the device? I know some of the problems can be kernal/etc. versions. With laptops I think it is a combination of all the above and maybe more.
The linux box I built earlier this year had the chipset, Intel cpu, and the ASROCK motherboard released this year. Technology wise maybe not cutting edge but all were new product releases. Zorin worked without a hitch on its install. <>
