    More AMDGPU DRM driver changes have been queued up for the Linux 4.7 kernel merge window that's expected to open next week.

That pull request from last week has yet to be honored in DRM-Next, but will represent one of the biggest deltas of all the kernel driver updates for Linux 4.7.

The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software.
