As of the week of August 27, you can use a template to control how the machine will be automatically named. So not exactly static, but gets you away from total random. From the discussion, sounds like not total random was good enough for some, but not all, so I will switch this back to “noted”.
more detail about what we released in August:
When you create an autopilot deployment profile, you can designate a name, which must be 15 characters or less, and can contain letters, numbers, and hyphens. Names can’t be all numbers. Use the SERIAL macro to add a hardware-specific serial number. Alternatively, use the RAND:x macro to add a random string of numbers, where x equals the number of digits to add.
It’s only available with the Windows Insider build for now.
I think I would prefer to have the ability to use a script to set the computer name.
Right now, our info sec team has strict requirements for naming for quick discoverability of ownership when looking at a device. This includes the device type (Desktop/Laptop, State, Location, and Serial Number). I can accomplish this with a script, but not even close with the current capabilities. As mentioned earlier, it doesn't make sense to change the computer name after joined, especially when using Hybrid Azure AD Join with Autopilot.
Yes, I would like to apply a refresh period based on AAD group.
There are reasons that some devices may require a different refresh period, such as being in a test environment, or sensitive devices that you may want to confirm compliance at a more frequent interval.

I agree. I've removed the wrong device several times when attempting to clean this up.
Marking as noted, meaning we are aware of the request and it’s been discussed. If we take any action, we’ll update the status,
I think it should be easy to set an installation order for applications. There are other items that are ordered in the Intune console, that can also be re-ordered.
Iterating through the list in the provided order to install applications should not be that difficult.
