Re: Pinebook Pro longer term usage report

Commented on Pinebook Pro longer term usage report via Hacker News:

I remember being a little too hyped over the Pinebook Pro a few months ago and almost getting one, as it looked like a cheap and promising device I could use to test the state of GNU/Linux desktops again, after switching to macOS 6 years ago. But they went out of stock, and then corona happened, which complicated logistics and made these laptops impossible to get for a few months.

I’ve recently come across a few long term reviews like this that conclude that the computer maybe wasn’t that good, due to either specs or quality of the hardware itself (keyboard, screen…). So now, I don’t know what to think. Feels like I’ve dodged a bullet.
