If you work at a desk with external monitor and mouse  (and don't want 
to work on the train or plane), take a look at an Intel NUC (from the 
likes PB Tech)

You get to pick how much RAM, disk, SSD, and so on you have Also have 
pretty good Linux support (put would pay to check online though).

Downsides are no internal UPS, no camera, no "gamer" graphics and you 
can't work from sofa or kitchen table - you need a dedicated desk

But unlike a full desktop you can put it in your bag and take it with 
you if you have to.

$2k would get you a top performing CPU (i7-10710U)  + 16GB RAM + 1TB M2 
SSD, and lots of change.
