While void runs about as well as Neon on the 7375, Neon runs SIGNIFICANTLY nicer on the 3379 than void did.

Still mostly happy with void. Definitely not in any danger of displacing Debian, Arch or Neon, but I like it despite it's flaws...guess it speaks to the fact that it's flaws are mostly able to worked around, while many of the alternatives have flaws too large for me to work around easily.

Neon for me has been amazing and for the first time Ive been running it as my primary choice on my older laptops. Fast and light.

Been using the 7375 while watching the IMSA race (recorded to avoid commercials), I don't know if void has a differently configured tlp, but it seems to get better battery life than it did with Neon on it. Neon I was getting ~4.5 hours, and if nothing changes, it'll easily get over 5 hours on the battery. While the Ryzen mobiles are fantastically powerful, battery life is NOT their forte.

Well, yeah, 45-watt processor vs. 15-watt.
