Will Debian 10 work on Huawei Matebook 14 with AMD Ryzen ?

Hi,

before buying the Huawei Matebook 14D with 512 GB PCIe SSD, 8GB RAM, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U i want to know if Debian 10 is working well on this system, since i am not the "Pro" user.

If anyone has thoughts or experience with this Ultrabook please let me know about it.

Thank you all in advance for help

If it works with *buntu it should work with Debian.

Third generation Ryzen is not well-supported by Debian buster's stock kernel but the version from the buster-backports repository should work, you'll also need the backported firmware-amd-graphics package. Unfortunately there are no backports for xsever-xorg-video-amdgpu or libgl1-mesa-dri so video support might be lacking.

I'm using a 2500U with buster's stock packages and it works well, can you find any cheap deals on slightly older laptops?

Awww...no mention of my own Buster backports of those? https://build.opensuse.org/project/show ... ort-buster

Just a note that the repo now contains the MX "linux-firmware" package, ported over from Ubuntu, for those that need the newer firmware it contains. It will be there until Debian updates their aging packages.
