HP went for AMD's Ryzen 7 Pro 5850U, a 15W 8-core/16-thread Zen 3 CPU with 4MB of L2 and 16MB of L3 cache, running at 1.9GHz base and up to 4.4GHz maximum boost clock. It has Radeon RX Vega 8 graphics with 8CUs, running at up to 2000MHz.

HP has paired the AMD CPU with 16GB of DDR4-3200 memory, upgradable to 64GB, and 1TB of PCIe 3.0 x4 SSD storage. The battery, which should keep it alive for around 12 hours, is a 3-cell 53Whr one.

There is also an optional HP Dual Point Backlit spill-resistant Premium Keyboard with the "Super Key", something developers coming from Linux would surely appreciate.
