    What do you linux about ARM laptops


    Hello,
    I would like to know your opinion about ARM laptops like the Pinebook.

    Do you think they can have a future? Or they are so low-end that can't be used for nothing more than light web browsing?

    my pinebook 14" is about to be delivered very soon now.
    it is a little sad that the specs are already quite far behind current hardware development even in the budget sector, but the price tag was really pleasant and i believe i couldn't have easily gotten anything better for that money, even used.

    i will be able to say more when i get, right now i think it depends a lot on
    - how well the distro i decide to install on it will support the hardware, esp. graphic accelaration
    - how easily it is expandable, i.e. replace or even add components.

    from the spec sheet i'd say it's very compact & (physically) lightweight, i hope it's also sturdy...

    Please post here your impressions about the Pinebook when you receive it. I'm also interested thanks to the low price, but I don't know what I really could do with it
