I agree that the G505S is a superior choice vs the ivy/sandy thinkpads
as it has no ME/PSP thus making it the newest and last owner controlled
x86 laptop but everyone be aware that it NEEDS a microcode update or you
are very easily rooted due to the piledriver+ NMI CPU exploit
additionally without the microcode the IOMMU won't work (and thus no qubes)

Most CPU's require microcode updates as there are critical errors in
manufacturing microcode.
