    Very good review, thanks for writing it, but ...

    It's a SUPER portable workstation.

    Supercomputers or high-performance computers are multi-motherboards, assembled in cabinets, and among other characteristics are characterized by:

    (from wikipedia)

    Processing speed: billions of floating point instructions per second.
    Users at the same time: up to thousands, in a wide network environment.
    Size: require special facilities and industrial air conditioning.
    Difficulty of use: only for specialists.
    Usual clients: large research centers.

    And they rarely have a window manager or desktop environment installed.

    It is not a super computer, it is a poorly structured gaming laptop. A ryzen with more cores and less consumption is preferred
