There are some interesting Chromebooks (existing and announced), maybe 
some SBCs as well, based on Mediatek SoCs[1].

Apple's M1 and future designs are also extremely interesting, e.g. a 
Macbook Air fully supported by a mainline kernel would be *very* 
interesting, despite the price[1].

Personal pain point: the PowerVR GX6250 in the Mediatek MT8173. But 
since this is a meeting with ARM, having fully mainlined support for all 
their GPUs would already be a great start (unsure what the current 
status is).

Mainlined support for the various on-chip hardware decoders would also 
be great (i.e. ffmpeg and friends in addition to Linux).

[1] writing this on an Acer Chromebook R13 running an ancient kernel 
from archlinuxarm.org that would benefit from mainline support.

[2] I'm not aware of a similar fanless laptop
