Or you could get a MacBook…
I would much rather have a Mac as well, and just use virtual machines at that price pointHaving used most of Lenovos line from their cheapest fleet level model costing a few hundreds to their most expensive costing over 5 grand I can say they’re disappointing at every price point. As far as the X1 carbon goes the MacBook Air is a superior machine in every metric. However as the OP has stated they have software demands that require an x86 based processor. Personally would have said to avoid Lenovo and get something like an XPS.
You can do that with just a clean install.in which case you are able to also have a clean installation of Windows 11 without any HP bloatware.
