would have to hard disagree with you on TB being more future-proof: the future is USB: TB and FW were (imo) hacks to get around older USB speed limitations. USB-C (esp v4) is the way of the future; however the point is moot in that the TB-enabled laptops do so via a usb-c connector and the port can function as usb-c anyway.

Something that I've found to be of great value on a laptop is a good display - the intel variants all seem to have good ones, but with the AMD variants, you'll need to specifically ask for a display with > 400nits (there's variants with only 250!). One of the biggest complaints I had with co-worker's Lenovos is that I can't see their screens when we pair where my Dell is beautiful from all angles. And it's not as if I'm trying to sell Dell here - rather that it's something I didn't think about checking until I saw a mac vs my dell vs other's lenovos and the first two have really great displays, where the lenovos i saw were... not great. So when you pick one of these, check on the display option!

Other than that, a lot of this seems to be if you want to go Team Red (AMD) or Team Blue (Intel). My recent experiences with Intel have steered me towards my next desktop upgrade being AMD, so I'd be biased that way anyway. The AMD laptop you've linked is significantly heaver than the Intel one tho. Battery life seems to be about the same.

If you say that getting the money
is the most important thing
You will spend your life
completely wasting your time
You will be doing things
you don't like doing
In order to go on living
That is, to go on doing things
you don't like doing

Which is stupid.
