My Pinebook Pro after a month of use.
#8
Well, toy implies that it can only be used for whimsical things.  That's far from the case.  But it is a hobbyist machine.  Not being able to use it is not the fault of the machine.  It's designed for people who already know how to make such things work, not for people who know how to use computers that already work.

I don't mean this to insult you: but if you won't learn how to first use Unix / Linux, then Pine64 products are the wrong product for you.  Or, you need to hire a system administrator.  My wife knows very little about computers, but she is able to use NetBSD, Debian, Armbian, ChromeOS, Android, and AmigaOS on a Pinebook Pro because, and only because, I am the system administrator.

You can become a system administrator.  Most of us started out with no prior knowledge.  There are really good resources out there for this.  Any big old Unix reference manual is good to read.  I'm guessing that typing "getting started in Linux" into DuckDuckGo would give good results.
