Pinebook Pro

The pinebook pro. https://www.pine64.org/pinebook-pro/

A little ARM linux laptop that can handle it. Here is my review after a week. I got the ANSI version. The keyboard works really well, Good tactile response. The screen is really clean. He also goes really fast. Around 16 seconds to boot to desktop.

For the moment i replaced the original installation on debian with manjaro. But im planning a migration on nixos soon. Im writing a guide on how to get nixos on this laptop

The only thing i don't like about the pinebook pro is the mousepad. Maybe a firmware issue but the mousepad is laggy.

You can run various version of Linux and android on the pbp. at 200$US the pinebook pro has amazing performance.

I will write an other review after i got nixos fully working on it
