I'm looking for a cheap laptop that will support LyX. I found a lenovo v14 82c6006 with CPU amd 3020e. Will it work, and would it be any different?

Hardware SSD and 16GB memory.

    Not sure if your question falls within the scope of this website but when the laptop can run an OS then it will normally also be able to run Lyx. Jul 18, 2023 at 11:47
  • What OS will you run? It is true that for macOS, we did see weird changes happen with the underlying changes due to the chip transition. Those are already ironed out for when the LyX 2.4.0 release comes. All this to say that it's not a crazy question; although the mac chip change thing was the only case where I saw something like this happen with respect to LyX.

  • I'm planning windows 10. So you're saying it will work exactly the same?

  • BTW, it will also support other languages (specifically hebrew)?

  • @Ben it appears it can support Hebrew if you use the xetex or xelatex engines, that comes under the settings somewhere (note: I have never used Lyx before!) tex.stackexchange.com/q/222755/273733
