Okay, I bought the laptops from Purism. I sure hope this works out!
@cwebber New avatar, new laptop, new house, new state?
WHO ARE YOU ANYMORE?!?
Post what you think once you've used it a bit
@cwebber if you can possibly spare the time, please post a review when you get downstream; I'm very interested in these and would appreciate your first-hand report.
@cwebber Fuuuuck yeeeeah!
@cwebber nice, got mine about a month ago. imho overpriced mediocre hardware, but excited about the future, the company is growing which means we might reach a point of Apple class libre computers
@decoy yeah I'm well aware that it's expensive given the build quality... but each iteration seems like it's better, and they do support coreboot and user-controlled TPM and blobless computers... all heading in the right direction.
@cwebber Me too!
@mikegerwitz trackpoint inflames my rsi so I'm not too worried about that
but yeah re: USB-C... I guess we'll see when I get it... and the USB-C dock, for that matter.
