    I genuinely hope you are not going to use it for anything serious

    But isn't that what you're doing right now ?

    I've been wanting to get one too
    Could you post a review here when you get it?

    @shoop why not use it for serious work? The chip is powerful enough for most things.

    @RememberMe that's the thing, I doubt it's powerful enough. 1.8 GHz ARM dual-core, 4gb ram, comparable to a raspberry pi.

    @shoop it's one of those big.LITTLE processors, has a low power quad core in there too

    So from what I can tell it's plenty for ye olde programming stuff and certainly plenty for sshing into a work server or documents/presentations/etc. That's what I would use it for if I had one.

    @RememberMe OK I guess it is fine for that, but by serious things I meant programming, compiling something, running games etc

    Is that like a macbook pro but at its real price $200?

    @shoop i think the laptop was made for developers that want to look into arm
    so programming should be fine

    @Linux keep us up to date, I also was thinking about buying one

    Of course it can be used to compile shit and run games.

    I subscribed but I can't seem to find the bell. @Stuxnet help me, young one

    (Also interested in knowing more about your purchase)

    I've always wondered how they work.

    Also kinda wanna try that new laptop that you can plug your Pi into. Should be interesting, especially if you can get one of the Pi 4s

    I have one, had it for several months but haven't put it to good use just yet because the default Debian it came with is not up to scratch (Kernel 4.4 with Mali binary blobs and armhf 32-bit userland), Manjaro is quite nice but has many quirks I don't quite like, and support for other Linux distros is just about to become a reality in a few weeks when Kernel 5.7 is out. It feels noticeably slower than a used Dell Latitude E7450 I just passed on to my wife. Despite that, I think it will be quite usable, and have a very good battery life, which is the main idea.
